Rockfax Description
The full corner line avoiding the leftward diversion of Sickle is excellent and a good test of layback and bridging skills. © Rockfax

Tough bridging and laybacking moves.

Took my first proper leader fall just around the overhang - I think I was swapping feet, and put weight onto a bad smear - wasn't expecting to fall. Lead a second time, making extra sure to place feet correctly and didn't fall, although I did do the route very thuggily! Will have to practice putting in gear on layback :)

Very nice indeed. Looks like a layback-fest, but in fact there's plenty of bridging to be had with the feet. A safe and amusing crack, worthy of the grade.
