Rockfax Description
A pleasant route that goes directly through The Great Curve and feels more like 6c than E4 once you reach the fixed gear. Start right of The Great Curve and gain the ledge and bolt at 5m. Move directly up into The Great Curve and clip its bolt, then head straight up the wall passing a few more bolts. After the first the route turns the screws slightly. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
F6c and rather pleasant, although a steady start to the first of 4 bolts

embob 24 Feb Lead Neutered it somewhat by having the first bolt pre-clipped. V glad I did as I pulled a hold off :- managed to stay on though. After that it felt pretty steady with just a few thin moves close to the bolts. Just got to keep going on the runout bits. Enjoyed it!
