Rockfax Description
18m. The soaring right arete of The Cow is magnificent and still sees few suitors 20 years on. Typically, the only gear available is above all the difficulties. © Rockfax

Headpoint. Probably the best line on grit in my opinion. Psyched doesn't even come close!

One of the best routes I've done on grit. Had a groundfall after the first crux, but walked away with no injuries. Sent it next week.
