Rockfax Description
Start as for Bentley's then traverse the lip, using the sidepull in the roof, and finishing up the arete. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start on the good-ish hold from the start of Bentleys. Stay under the roof and then slap up the sloppers to the nose and then finish with a bit of confusion.

Came so close! Can't manage the shorty's heel-to-hand thing, but managed to stick the move without it twice in many hours of trying. Sadly I hand't sorted out the end move when i got to it, and once I worked it out couldn't repeat the crux. Next time I'm near, it will go. Enough of this 'much harder if you're tall' nonsense. There is another way to do the move, and its not all that hard. This has got to be soft, he says, having never done it..

Did all the moves, could do with being a few feet further from the ground, then it would be classic. Its just a shame about ur arse draggin on the floor as ur moving, kinda makes it feel shit, athouh the holds are lovely. Wont be rushing back unless it grows.
