Rockfax Description
A good route but a hard on-sight. The climbing weaves deviously around most of the steepness until the final bulge provides a hard and blind finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start at the left end of the crag, left of Under The Boardwalk. Climb up to an overlap and pull through to good holds. Continue through a steeper section to the final bulge. Finish with a really and blind move over the bulge.
