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.

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.

Not really a red point...foot slipped on the penultimate move on the onsight, but I got straight back on and climbed the route clean.

We ended up at the quarry after walking for two hours and not finding Oxwich point. After failing to get up Glue Wall, I managed to haul myself up this line, but it wasn't pretty. Maybe I need to practice a bit indoors.
