Rockfax Description
10m. The thin flaky wall leads to the bulges. Pull through (runners to the left) then finish using the solitary left-hand fluting. © Rockfax

3rd go. Backed off, then took a whipper, then stuck it. Gotta love the cam nest.

Got to the final break to retrieve the gear. The stiff pull to the top did not appeal.

Interesting climb, a one move wonder. Big deadpoint to the top fluting. First E1 since 'backcident 2' three years ago.

Great climb very bold and little protection the start was easy but after the horizontal break its very reachy.

Very long reach from the crimps to the fluting. Rested on the gear to work out best placement of feet in order to reach the fluting - hard for the short!!

Grasped the final fluting, but couldn't commit to the lay back - all in the head. Must return.

Got pumped placing gear at the top, downclimbed to the ground, climbed back up, fell off, stripped the route and led clean. First E1.
