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

3rd go up. Felt impossible on first aquaintance but not too hard once you know the sequence.

with Will, Nick Smith
Stuart William 04/Jun/16 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.

mikedevcole 04/Jun/16 Lead dog

Did all the moves but didn't manage to clip the final draw on lead.

Dean177 29/May/16 Lead RP

2nd go today, had two attempts last time too. First 7c in 3 years! (Left foot up for me)

Finally got beta for the rock over move that works really well. Unfortunately the crucial pocket was sopping wet, but felt v strong otherwise.

Definitely soft, the only hard move really is the rock over/mantel, and even that is just as matter of commitment.

Awesome climax! (thats what she said) Fell off the flash on the rockover, blind moves to the lip and tricky to get your feet up, really hard to read. 1st redpoint felt steady.
