40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The system of groves protected by a mix of trad gear and bolts.
1) 6b 23m. Bridge up then rock over left onto a spike. Layback up the central fin using wide bridging to the belay.
2) 6b, 20m. Climb the groove to the bulge then stretch right to an undercut and make a stiff pull to easier finishing moves. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climbs the system of groves left of Jack of Shadows. The gear is a mix of trad and bolts (stems from the ethics of the time).

The first pitch bridges up then rocks over lest onto a spike then laybacks up the central fin using wide bridging to reach the belay. The second pitch climbs the grove to the bulge then stretches right to an undercut and stiff pull to easier finishing moves and a BB.

feilx 29 Jun, 2017 2nd RP Stepped on the last bolt on lead, then cleaned it on 2nd. Awesome battle which is basically a sport route now with just a couple of trad runners.
