Rockfax Description
Although unbalanced, this is a memorable struggle from which few escape unmarked. Start at a crack above a gap in the ledge.
Burly crack manoeuvres ease at the midway point. Follow the natural line of steep cracks above to finish. © Rockfax

Lumbering Oaf 9 Aug, 2014 2nd O/S Great atmosphere with swell booming at high tide. Good jamming and careful bridging to surprise flake on cruxy bottom section. Middle and top sections are easier and interesting. Good route and worth a star.
