Rockfax Description
12m. Start just left of the arete and climb up and right spiralling above the bulges to an exposed finish around to the right above the big overhangs. A bit bold. © Rockfax

Elaine Reed 06/Nov/17 Lead O/S

Lovely jug fest with reasonable gear too; avoided noticing any exposure by not looking down during the top section.

Must have missed out the 4a move somehow, felt easier than some VD's on the crag. I only got 2 bits of gear in the whole climb but really, you don't need any, this climb is the definition of "airy jugfest". Enjoy.

Jugtastic - holds in abundance, but gear in scarcity (unless you have LOTS of big stuff). Not sure where the 4a move is, possibly easier climbing than some of the diffs here a bouts. It feels quite adventurous though with plenty of air below you ;-)
