Rockfax Description
12m. A little beauty and doubtless harder than you will be expecting. A fingery layback and long stretch gains the break. Pump left along this quickly and delicately climb the wall right of the arete. © Rockfax

Awesome. :-) Possible sandbag at VS, but understand grade. It's a route that is easier to solo with good spotters & several mats! But to keep this VS on lead you must work very hard placing gear as pump quickly makes this high end 5a. Those that power thru to semi-rest holds & better gear face potential ground fall, but save energy.

Foot slipped and I didn't have the strength to hold on... Hardest route I've done at this grade. Still enjoyable, though.

Lovely solid laybacking to the break, felt easier to reverse than break off right as wasn't up for the top out, maybe next time

with Jude

definately 3*, tho be bold and go straight for the top break before putting gear in to reduce the pump :)

Bad choise for a warm up, didn't give it the respect it deserved. Spend too long p[lacing gear and got pumped, found it hard to just go for it.
