Rockfax Description
A great pitch, much better than it looks. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Fantastic high in the grade 6b+. Hard to onsight at this grade because it has an unobvious crux in a very very pumpy situation. Keeps you interested right to the chains.
Watching your mate climb the overhang first reduces the grade slightly but trying to avoid using the tree stump increases the grade. (tree stump now gone!)
If you don't want the beta look away now - at the tufa overhangs reach high and right to a hidden slot - straight up is desperate.

George_Surf 15 Nov, 2017 Lead RP Accidentally went up and to the left at the 3rd bolt instead of going right through the tufas. Much easier when you know where the holds are. It’s steep and the good holds are good but you haven’t got long to hang around and test everything. Above it’s easier but still some tricky technical moves

Dave Turnbull 1 Aug, 2016 Lead β Worth 6c for sure. (6c in local guidebook). Tufa overhang is pumpy with un-obvious holds. Wouldn't have flashed it without the clips in, beta from James and some situ tick marks. Excellent route.
