Rockfax Description
A great dyno for the short (probably worth 6c+)...a straightforward reach for the tall. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
For those who can do the reach, this route is much easier.

AMorris 12 Oct Lead RP slipped off on my first try on account of misreading the sequence and having olive oil on my shoes. It was not worth the blue toe nail I got from booting the wall

Coc-ker 16 Sep Lead Left hand, using the flake. Still stiff, but definitely easier than going straight up towards the bolt.

jake.hamish.walters 4 Nov, 2017 TR RP Just about got the deadpoint with much screaming and dramatics. Absolutely nuts for a 6a! At least 6b, but felt around the 6b+ mark. Really cool and interesting little boulder problem leading up to the big throw

JoeFoster59 31 May, 2017 Lead O/S Cool route can see how impossible it'd be for the short I was at full reach and still at to do some quite some strenuous moves wouldnt say it was a straightforward reach. Also the move up to the alleged dyno was pretty technical I only got i through a ridiculous high foot. Cool technical climb a bit loose at the top.
