Rockfax Description
A quality excursion packed with hard climbing and topped off with a well-positioned steep slab. Start at the thin right-leaning crack as for Rustic Wall. Move up the thin crack-line to a peg and make a couple of hard moves up left to a good pocket. Climb up right past a bolt to gain and follow a rightward trending, strenuous thin diagonal crack to a good hidden hold. Make a powerful pull up to a short crack in the wall above to good holds. Gain the recess above and from its right side move up onto the slabby wall and traverse left above two bolts to a small niche. Climb the slabby wall boldly, first up and then right to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the thin crack in the center of the wall to a peg and make a reeeeach to a mondo jug in the pocket. Clip the bolt and storm up and slightly right to where two cracks meet in a Y shape. Take the crack on the right to where is ends then move up to a little cave. Have a breather, clip two stonking blots and teeter up the lovely slab above.

Crux went ok, but if you can hold on long enough to get through the rest clean you are my hero. Wouldn't like to arrive at the top slab on lead without spare underwear.

Fell of the crux. Aided off the peg to get the bolt and lowered off this. Hard! But if that's the crux it would go with a couple more attempts. The sort of thing I'd expect to find on f7b.

Sort of retro-flash of previously dogged ascent I suppose. Remembered beta for bottom crux at least. Got very pumped lacing the gear in, ace top wall to finish.

Found the crux really hard, managed it in isolation but not linked to anything. Will have to get some fitness and come back.

3 stars!!! Great climb, lumpy lower bit and a pretty lively slab at the top!

So pumpy. Nearly fell when a bit of the crack fell off below my feet. Hated the slab. Great route

Very humid!!! Good route but Im going to have to buy more chalk as I used so much on it.

Crux is probably at the end of the crack near the start of the route but the time is spent mostly trying to work out the top slab... good route, kinda ruined by the bolts tho...
