Rockfax Description
Classic features. The right arete of the groove has tufas, pockets and wrinkles. All very French. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A superb route up the flowstone forming the right arete of the prominent groove left of Pissin’ The Sink. Belay and first bolt need attention.

Wise 21 Sep, 2018 Lead rpt Great crag choice from Ben after a night of torrential rain, we got what little sun there was. Super little route, surprisingly pumpy considering all the holds are good.
