Rockfax Description
Yawn up to the ledge over the lip of the wall from the undercut break - dynamic for many. A naughty mantel remains. © Rockfax

Brilliant problem. Was pretty terrified doing the mantel!

Mantel is deceptively tricky. Stretch is lessened by +4 ape index.

Took a while to get to the dish. (Too short, had to jump for it) Mantle was fairly easy. Great problem

Psyched to get this eventually. Did it static with some pebbles rather than the pop/jump to the jug. Mantle bit was hard and a bit scary. A good one to do when there's 10 pads available.

My last route of the day so close to the top jug dam it. Recon I will get it next time with more commitment and better balance. My head was all over the place on this felt funny woozy and a little sick after having to bail on a e3 earlier

Took a few goes to get stood up from the undercut. Thankfully the mantle wasn't that hard as it's quite high up! Did it again afterwards. Great balancey moves.

Had to finish by going out left (v3 Stretch and Sketch!?). That mantel is sketchy as! Nothing for your feet to stick to but plenty for them to slip off!
