Rockfax Description
A brilliant problem. Climb the overhanging arete then rock over for a highball finish. From sitting it is a considerably harder - V5 - with a powerful move to get off the ground. © Rockfax

Partial credit. Went left at the top rather than staying direct.

No idea how to do the sit, bit of seepage underneath as well.

Shame the hard bit is so short, top feels high too and sit start is just annoying!

Superb. Start is pretty hard, then I went for a bit of a dynamic move for the jug; top slab is reasonably technical and highball, but not too scary.

No mat or chalk, and five minutes after it had finished hosing down. Top out was still sodden.
