Rockfax Description
The centre of the slab and high overhang gives a testing and sustained exercise in a fantastic position. Protection is good if a bit fiddly to arrange. Start just right of 'F' Route's flake. Move up the vague rib to gain the slab and take some thin cracks up it to below the overhang. Make some stretchy pulls over the overhang to get established on the upper slab. More thin pulls lead to the top. © Rockfax
