Rockfax Description
The easiest 8a of the lot. There is a rest after the first bulge followed by a tricky crux in the middle section before finishing out left. A longer finish joins the last part of Parasite. © Rockfax

chris_woodsy 12 May Lead RP Really pleased to get this done kind of quickly. Never found the moves too bad, just a matter if dialling in the beta and getting on the RP's! Sweet!

Alex Mason 2 Jul, 2016 Lead RP Had 6 sessions on this back in 2010 but got bored after falling off post crux. Did 2nd RP today with the parasite finish. Totally worth doing, it adds no difficulty and its the best bit of climbing on the route.

shed_hed 25 May, 2015 Lead dog Dogged every bolt on first attempt. Second attempt climbed clean to hardest move of second crux. Could pull through crux after a rest but too powerful and couldn't figure out how to get through when tired. Clipping will the intresting after the crux!
