Rockfax Description
One of the best routes at Polney. Gain the break in the lower roof via a traverse in from the right, step up and make hard moves right below a bulge (peg runner) onto a wrinkled slab. Climb up, then left to gain hanging blocks under more roofs. Climb the fine clean-cut groove slanting up to the right to finish. © Rockfax

Fun climb! Tad polished in places, rope drag is horrendous if using a single rope (lifted gear), peg at crux is in a bad way.

Wow what a great route! a little nervy pulling over onto the slab above the in situ peg,then a nice traverse left to the bottom of the Groove.Then the groove itself feels fantastic.

Scary move at the start past the peg. Then easier until near the top. Then tricky again. Very well protected.
