Rockfax Description
A classic that follows the vague crack system to the upper slab with a tricky mantel onto the ledge. The super steep upper wall has some surprisingly welcome jugs and an exciting top-out, which is easier once you know where the good holds are. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the groove about 2.5 metres right of the groove of Funnel directly. Top out on the ledge then climb straight up the front of the block above the ledge. Quite nice.
Wandering up the slab to the left of the start reduces the grade and enjoyment!

Ticklists: Southern Sandstone Rockfax Top 50.

Hardest sandstone onsight to date. Chuffed as felt there were 3 separate section of climbing each warranting the 5c grade.

Climbed clean up until the last move or two, wasn't feeling strong enough to do the overhanging boulder problem finish.

Thought I'd have no problem on this today but did it last and maybe just pumped from earlier climbs.

Gorgeous topout that makes it all worth while. Stay away from your gear and use the micro edges to get into a position to mantle it. Love this climb. 1st asccent was working the route and secon was clean. Proper three star route
