Rockfax Description
One of the most popular hard routes in the quarries, and rightly so. The correct sequence of shapes, grunts and ferocious pulls will lead you to the lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start right of 'Green Ernie' up the line of bolts. Desparate but good.

shed_hed 10 Sep, 2014 TR dog Managed to go from the big rock over and get to the rest after the crux in one go. Got two possible methods of doing crux, both equally hard but different, need to decide which one I like best! Tricky, tricky, tricky but happy to have got somewhere on it.

dswansonlow 3 Sep, 2014 TR dog Finally got around to having another go on this. Just as cool as I remember. I go it from just off the floor to the post-crux jug. So I need to get back to send it!
