Rockfax Description
A fine, hard and very bold line. Start 6m right of the left edge of the slab on the left-hand side of an alcove, as for Half Life.
Pull through the bulge and move up to good holds as for Half Life. Above is a lone peg, climb to and past the peg via a very tough move and proceed to the top with little in the way of protection. © Rockfax

Had a go at this on top rope - bloody hell the crux is hard, had a couple of goes but got through it in the end.

Amazing route, only one tricky move, safe but bold. Bob got soaked on the ab rope!

Good, hard slab climbing. Took a 20 footer off the crux but got it 2nd go.

The tricky section is a couple metres past the peg, bringing the foot into the triangular pocket and moving up from there, with feet smearing on tiny holds and minimal handholds. The gear looks thin here as well so it would be pretty scary on lead!!

Don't know if i pulled right to much after the rp as i stepped up and then went right a bit before going back up and left. Ad did the move straight up and it seemed ok, but just less obvious. a bit eliminate??

Took a 20 footer onto a micro wire which held! Got it second go. Gear is actually good around the peg but very run out after that. Bold
