Rockfax Description
25m. The wall crack and overhang are a popular challenge. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A scary route. Climb up to and over the overlap right of Bueno etc. Continue up the headwall with a growing sense of alarm to finish with some relief!

3rd go. An odd route- felt absolutely nails first go because the moves are so hard to read and putting in the clips is desperate. But once I had the beta dialled and the draws in (long draw on crux bolt means you can clip from undercut) it felt about 6c!!

Didn't expect to get this. Pulling out of a roof is a skill I need to work on.

Second go, not doing very well with onsighting stuff today! Went too far left through the overhang and couldn't reach the good holds in the crack required to clip in. Fine on second go and not too hard, good no hands rest before the roof and bomber finger lock to clip off.

2nd go. Blew the onsight, just wasn't decisive enough through the crux. Fun climb!

Onsight failed when foot popped off the shiniest little glass foothold I've ever seen by bolt 3. The roof felt well tough for the grade.

Felt hard for 7a+, plus lots of red-herring chalk and slippery footholds. Good moves. A bit scarily bolted, but not dangerous. Slipped off a polished foothold, got it second go.

Body position dependent climbing to the roof then two savage pulls on particularly painful pockets around the lip. spoils the whole route.
