Rockfax Description
A tough nut with good moves. This is a modern take on an older line that finished up easier ground after the difficult initial wall. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A great variant on Inch Pinch - move right at mid-height, following the bolt line.

kirstymcn 8 Sep Lead dog Tried this a couple of times. Everything is doable except the long reach. I made it work once when fresh, but it's right at the limit of my reach.

myrddinmuse 1 Sep Lead RP Took about 10 goes at the start over two lead attempts, but got there in the end (using the left hand approach). Was low on energy at the end of a long day, but felt like there was at least a sliver of a chance of pulling it off, especially after watching Stu. Flow isn't how I'd describe it, but more like constant dynamic lurches at the limit of what my fingers and skin could do! Fantastic.

Rocky 26 Aug Lead dog What a route!! Katie worked out some cool beans beta for the start which made it consistently repeatable. The sequence to the slot on the lip felt insecure and hard ... but doable. And then what?? We were totally flummoxed for the sequence moving off the slot to the good hold in the break! Started to beg other groups to try it for the beta. Unfortunately those that tried it just lanked through which was not what I wanted to see. Talking to a lass later on she said she'd tried it using the shit crimps out left and a high foot just below the lip. I might try this next time. Lovely route though. Top was interesting right to the chains.
