Rockfax Description
Excellent climbing. Start up a flake. Finish slightly left via a desperate move to pass the 'smooth band'. © Rockfax

Wise 3 Jun Lead dog Fell off the start and hurt my finger so wasn't super motivated after that. Wall at the top can be climbed direct or slightly more easily from the right. Either way is easier than the bottom!

mop449 17 Nov, 2017 Lead dog Awesome route. Initially tried it via the 'desperate' move but broke a hold on the start of the crux sequence before the peg. Went right instead on chalked sidepulls and crimps. It felt more in-keeping with the grade. Pumped off on the red point attempt just before clipping the peg. One to come back to.
