Rockfax Description
Something of an ankle breaker. Make technical moves up polished rock to hopefully gain the high bolt. Above the climbing eases but the gear disappears © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The rib to the right of Monster Kitten. No protection until after the hard technical crux at ankle-snapping height.

Looked ok, start is hard though. I jumped off first time, went for it second go, foot slipped but i was on the jug, then clipped the bolt. Didnt feel 6a but it a tenuous off balance long move. Above the climbing gradually eases but its still 5a/5b and from halfway you'll deck. Relief to clip the top, i was thinking about the up not down

steady climbing. Probably not worth 6a. easy from the bolt.

Didn't commit to the slightly awkward start until the fourth go, downclimbed twice then unfortunately held the belay on the third go so lost the onsight. A fun route tho, nice and easy after the first few moves.

had a bash at this after doing monster kitten. looked easy, turned out it wasnt so easy! first bolt is quite high, and belay is on abit of a ledge. slipped off - good catch by al!

Good moves lower down and an awesome run out but surely pretty soft for 6a??
