Rockfax Description
Low in the grade, though the loss of a hold has made it even harder for the short than it used to be. The face right of the arete has hard moves above the roof to the ear. Escape right below the roofs or throw yourself at the next offering. © Rockfax

βeta: The long reach just got longer! - or the reached hold got worse - the bottom of the flake has broken off.

βeta: Where is the long reach on this route? I am 5'8" and very easily reached from the left undercut to the flake with my right hand. Felt like E1 5B.

βeta: Lovely reach, when you finally get your feet high enough to hit the flake with all four fingers it all falls into place. Bomber gear.

βeta: This was first E2, although not desperate the reaches were quite long. The traverse at the end wasn't hard - but it feels tricky on tiring arms. Overall a really good route, bomber gear, good holds and ncie moves
