Rockfax Description
More sustained climbing on a harder counter line to Colossus. Start just left of Colossus below a slim groove. Climb this past two bolts to a tricky section leading to another bolt. From here trend right to gain a niche in Colossus and move right again to the base of a smooth V-groove. Thrutch up this and then take the stepped groove-line leading up and right to the top. © Rockfax

Andy Moles 21 Mar Lead Surprised to find the wall (mostly) dry. Carried a rack and placed maybe three pieces, only one really worth having was right at the start.

Gabe Oliver 28 May, 2017 Lead O/S First E4 and what a route! Always wanted to climb something on this wall even though it's super intimidating. Definitely more psychologically taxing than physically. Not sure it felt very 6a to me but there was a lot of sustained 5c in the lower wall. Big step cracking into this grade :) happy days!
