Rockfax Description
8m. Pull past the overlap then traverse out left to a good ledge. The centre of the roof requires a bit of a tussle. The Wimp's Finish heads all the way to Ulfer's Crack to avoid the roof, VS 4b. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Traverse that slab leftwards to a ledge beneath the roof. Climb the roof via the obvious weakness.

Well worth the 3 stars, loved it, but really took some commitment compared to some other HVS's and a few E1's hereabouts. Scorching conditions today may have something to do with that mind.

Bailed right when stumped by the roof. Lower slab feels harder and scarier than ever

Norbu started and I finished it.

Ended up backing off top out due to lack of psyche in the heat. After Alex finished the lead I found the pocket I'd missed on lead and finally managed to reach the top out.

Finished the route on Robin's gear. Really good moves through the roof, certainly makes you think twice. Not easy on the slab either.

Tricky move across the slab, then an exciting move through the roof on not ideal gear. good fun though.

Always wanted to Solo, but to be honest i was glad to be there with someone wanting to lead it too, It's high and could be read wrong. Great roof, quality.
