Rockfax Description
Another chipped route, which was 'designed' for tall climbers; shorter people find it much harder. Even for the tall it is ridiculously thin with big moves. © Rockfax

reachy and hard but very cool! got a very high crossed-through right foot for the crux, which was equally hard but perhaps nicer beta.

Managed all the moves now! Now to start linking the harder moves together and nailing the sequence. Rockover felt hard today!!

Did all the moves again apart from an awkward foot swap down near the second bolt. Rockover didn't feel too bad.

Quality moves all the way! I think I just about did all of the moves in isolation apart from a foot swap by the second bolt but linking them is going to testing as it's so sustained! Bolts look a little spaced but a couple of extenders should do the trick.

Dogged to warm up and get wills beta for moves then did first red point. Psyched!!

Classic slatey sequences - fierce and bunched and tenuous! Chuffed to do it in a quick session, almost got it 1st redpoint but foot slipped off a wet foothold in the final easy crack after doing the hard span left. Packed it with chalk and boshed it 2nd RP, happy days!

Did all the moves except the long reach left. Think I'll go back and have a proper go at this one.

Awesome! Chipped but very funky climbing. Took a while to work out a complex sequence for my high. About three sessions working out the moves then about three red-point sessions.

Stunning sequences that get better towards the top. Can do all the moves apart from one low down which requires 10mm extra reach! Would want better bolts before I consider a rpt.
