Rockfax Description
A popular and very committing, but potentially crippling problem. tart under the roof just left of a crack at an inconveniently situated pointed block. Nip up the wall to the roof and reach around to a hold on the lip. Pull around and proceed with caution up the rounded breaks to the top. © Rockfax

No falls but a bit of down climbing sadly over a couple of sessions. Excellent. Font 6A with pads. (Actually apparently more like 6C. For the record you know).

Gained a knee egg on top rope, safer to solo

Above pads, but didn't use them (climbed down rather than jump off). Took a couple of tries to commit to the move to the break!

Felt easy today after much climbing up and down from the crux on previous visits. With mats and spotter.

Brilliant climbing in an exciting position, more like hard 6a though. Bouldered up to the crux and reversed a few times, couldnt commit, then tied on with some gear at the back of the roof and just went for it, undecided as to whether it would have caught me but was a psychological help for sure. Top route!
