Rockfax Description
A butch exercise. Start below a recess 3m above the ground with a borehole strike at its back
Move up to the borehole, and then climb the right-hand wall to an easing below a steep crack and undercut wall, some good gear here. Make big moves to jugs over the lip and haul up to a resting place. Climb more easily to a bolt and then head right to finish up the cleanest line. © Rockfax

βeta: Good gear all over the crux. Bold first moves but you’re so close to the ground…

βeta: Nut slot (only gear) protecting the first mantle is very worn out. Wouldn\'t want to fall off IMO

βeta: Crux is relatively straightforward if you are tall, heavy polish throughout. Dedicated second from Dan with bad shoes and worse elbows.
