Rockfax Description
Quality climbing with a sting in the tail. Start 6m right of the large block.
Leave the ground with some difficulty and continue past the break and up the small steep corner to the crux rock-over that provides access to the final short slab. © Rockfax

J1_TOV 25 Aug, 2018 Lead RP Skipping the last clip makes for an exciting mantel, especially later when the rope is covering the toe to stand up on! Done over 2 half day sessions 17/25th plus a rather greasy TR go on 15th. Ended up being more beta intensive than I expected or maybe I am just shit at route reading. Crux for me was getting through the slot to crimps.

Stuart William 4 Jun, 2016 Lead RP flows really nicely, especially the start. Crux was working out where to clip the last bolt from. Meant to climb past it and try from higher but felt solid on the slot on the last go so clipped from that. Mantle is fine once you decide on your beta. Probably 5th rp- three of which were really just trying to work out the last clip. My 1st 7c.
