Rockfax Description
14m. A good route with hard but safe (if you don't mind a bit of flight time) climbing. Reverse the last section of Duke of York then use the flake to make tough moves to reach better holds. Finish up the flake and flutings above. Photo on page 327. © Rockfax

Hugobristol 18 Oct, 2017 Lead dnf A few rushed attempts before dark. Got established on the break on my third go but (when already obscenely pumped) it started to rain, so I dropped off and cleaned it from below. will be back.

Gabe Oliver 18 Oct, 2015 TR rpt Second go, ground up. Repeated it twice more with no issues. Definitely going to come back for the lead tick when I can find the plums cause the route is every bit as good as it looks from the ground!
