Rockfax Description
Miles better than any other route in the Dovestones Quarries. The finger-crack gives super-sustained finger jamming all the way, well-protected, but with little for your feet. Another classic from the raiding Bancroft. . © Rockfax

uphillnow ??, 1989 Lead dog Couldnt bear the pain, like fingers placed in a vice. Strong enough at the time and gear was good but still needed 2 rests on the rope.
