Rockfax Description
A hidden gem tucked behind the encroaching oak. Climb to, and up, the finger-crack, then the short wall. Hard for the grade. © Rockfax

Quite dirty and solid for HVS (gear at foot level and tough 5a moves near the top) but excellent.

Slipped off the wrong foothold low down. Thought I would struggle with reach but made it with high step. Nice route, could use more traffic

as good as the stories i'd hurd about this "line" in the woods at curbar. Good climbing, felt solid at the grade, and was expecting a few more runners in the upper part
