Rockfax Description
Start as for Fortuna, but head right from a thread, then continue up into the roof. Make some big swings on huge holds across the lip before pulling up to the top. An amazing line for the grade. © Rockfax

Went back to the same beach, and hopped on again for a bit of fun. Took two goes to get it again, after the O/S yesterday. Was too nervous to get on a 7a nearby, so I just repeated the same line again...

A total joy; slightly scary move right off a slopey hold onto the arch proper, especially as it's when your back is parallel to the water, but all of the moves are a total joy. Got on with no expectations, but was over the moon with the O/S. The route that made me realised DWS is fun.

Gripping. Two knee bars in the initial niche, first R then L, allowed a much slower commitment to the crux swing out.
