Rockfax Description
Elegant climbing up the narrowing corner right of Mithrandir, gained via a technical traverse. Start up Razor Crack and, at its initial undercut flakes, make an intricate traverse left to arrive at the long narrowing corner. Follow the corner to the top. © Rockfax

Jon Read 25 Aug Lead O/S After the goey moves into and intially up the groove, I got so much gear I ran out of quickdraws. A valiant follow from Chris.

Mike505 7 Jul, 2018 Lead G/U Stopped for a chat just after the move left from the thread, stopped concentrating and my foot popped, lowered off and went again. Ran it out a little only to hear Jon ask if I could get any gear in, upon looking down I then realised to my disbelief that my sinker nut had come out and the next series of moves were made above a shallow alien placement but soon to be rewarded with more gear.
