Rockfax Description
Classic sustained and reachy climbing. Start just right of the arete by a crack. Climb this to a niche at 8m and clip the bolt above. Move up to the V-groove and climb its left arete on good holds with a long reach for the second bolt. More fingery climbing leads you on past a couple of reaches to a third bolt. Layback past this and traverse right to better holds and another bolt. Ascend the groove (tricky for the short) and mantel onto a ledge (harder for the tall). Step right to join Ride the Wild Surf and finish up its thrilling groove in the headwall. © Rockfax

shed_hed 8 May, 2018 2nd O/S This has some actual moves, really nice climbing and definitely would have been a headstress to lead. Angus cruised it, even with wet holds near the top.

Mike Goldthorp 28 Mar, 2011 Lead O/S Felt steady, hardest bit was ride the wild surf, but the first half has great slightly airy climbing on really nice holds.

Duncan Campbell 28 Mar, 2011 2nd Runout but steady. Hardest part was on ride the wild surf. Stupidly fell off the top due to carelessness.
