Rockfax Description
A hard, highball boulder problem start is the meat of this much-attempted line. Start below the low overhang right of the wide crack of Athos.
Move up to the low overhang and make some difficult moves to get established above it. Finish direct. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The wall to the right of Haggis. Attach your long arms for this one! Harder for the short now a big block has fallen off from under the break (probably E2 5c/6a if you can't reach the thin seam without lunging or using the poor quartz crimp). A popular solo though good friends can be arranged easily below the crux in the break.

One hard move, surrounded by HS climbing. Like a doable version of Overlapping Wall at Pule Hill. Took me at least half a dozen attempts to do the 'one hard move', mind.

Had a lead and a few falls... gear is bomber. But landing very close to ground. I think it would be a deck if you fell from top of the crux. Did the move first try on the top rope but felt massively desperate and reachy. Top end of 5c for sure

Seems mighty hard for 5c moves. I got totally shut down, trying to pull up on greasy crystals. Longer arms would help, as would a colder day.

Very tricky crux and there is still one more hard move above to get to better holds! Cams are good from first hand experience, but not sure how well they protect the final move to better holds

First E1. I top roped over a year ago - so I knew I could do it, but I could not remember the move. I fell four or five times before I figured out where to put my left foot (and then it felt quite easy).

This should be in the West face section of the logbooks. Anyway, nasty reach at the start, but leads to jugs and much easier ground above.
