Rockfax Description
A popular pumper that folows a fine, well-protected finger-crack. The rock anchor bolts are out-of-bounds for holds! Start at the bottom of a thin right-trending crack below an overhang at 7m with a number of massive rock anchors just above it.

Climb the strenuous crack past the overhang and up the grey wall until it fades below a massive ring bolt. Move up to just below the ring bolt (runner only!) traverse the thin break left and move up to a short crack and easier climbing to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Brilliant, sustained and well protected, so long as you can get the wires in before you get pumped out of your mind.
