Rockfax Description
A mega classic! Start from The Block and reverse The Might of the Stalactite until you begin to naturally elevate towards a small cave in the wall. Rest here before tackling the finale, which involves a pull over the roof to a good pocket, followed by a rising traverse to join Roter Baron at a large bucket hold. © Rockfax

Hungover and scared shitless. I only did it because Bart did. Actually not too bad though. Good rest in the big hole, some big moves from there. Steady to the top. Awesome line!

Big seas but oh so soft.

Wow the climbing is good, got to the cave close to the end, didn't think to try a knee bar, ran out of gas, continuing the trend of falling off when it's practically in the bag

Excellent route. Nice moves with a decent height. One of the best DWS at the grade I've come across.

6c+ glad to have done this as I'd been finding the dws quite scary the whole trip!

Asked for beta from someone in the water while I was resting in the cave, and was accidentally sandbagged with a left/right confusion... blew the onsight just to end up making it harder for myself! :D

Hurrah for cave! Great rest spot before long move (I had to dyno), only made it because of all the awesome encouragement, in multiple languages, from others at the crag!
