Rockfax Description
Fine, intense and highly technical climbing on excellent rock. Start 5m right of Sahara below some pockets and an eco bolt at 7m. Stretch up the pockets to the bolt and use a thin sidepull on the left to start a difficult, crimpy sequence up the wall above before trending right to the midway break and a thread. Climb up the wall above the thread past a hidden finger-jug to a good horizontal break and then make some long moves up the wall above slightly leftwards to join and finish as for Sahara. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb straight up to reach a large pocket. Clip a bolt out left and execute a difficult sequence to pass the bolt. Move up to a resting place at a break (thread). Stand up in the break and stretch for a small finger jug. Cross through to reach a good horizontal break. Move up leftwards to a slightly run-out finish.

Took a few up-and-down efforts to commit to move to first bolt, got there and popped off shortly after clipping. Got a few moves higher but off again on blind, dirty section above and sacked it off. Conditions weren't ideal but had hoped to fare better :(

Woop woop! Did the crux sequence for the first time today. Initial wall felt ok so psyched to come back and lead it. Solid E6 imo. I can warm up on Red Rag to a Bull but struggle to do the individual sequences on this.
