Rockfax Description
Start under the roof and trend left to pass it strenuously using a large jammed block just above the lip with care. Once above the bulges, step back right and finish more easily up the slabby face and groove. © Rockfax

foobar123 28 May, 2017 Lead O/S Bit of an ego boost after failing at a load of other HVSs! Crux is pretty low and committing but not too hard as you're on rather big holds.
