Rockfax Description
A brilliant and extremely sustained wall climb up the thin seams. The first bolt is high up, but the climbing to reach it is okay. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb directly up from the foot of Galleta and follow the vague groove. Getting polished. The Fr5+ grade is rubbish.
