Rockfax Description
The thin crack left of the corner to a tough direct finish. Escaping left or grovelling under the boulder will lower the grade and remove the point a bit. © Rockfax

The "thrutch" direct finish is indeed harder than it looks but certainly the true line. HS 5a I reckon; protection is excellent.

Blistering hot day, didn't trust the friction/jams, escaped left.

Good jams over the roof but didn't fancy the top out, down climbed to finish as for the variant.

Doubt it's onsight. Pretty sure I'll have soloed up to the crux previously or possibly used it as a descent. Provably more like VS4c if you're strict at the top.

Such an awkward finish at the top, kicked out my gear in the crack so had to go for it, loved it!

First time intentionally soloing. I thought it was a VDiff, fail at remembering the guidebook...
