Rockfax Description
The rounded rib to the right of the crack leads steeply to a ledge where a holly competes for space. Lean awkwardly left to access good lumpy holds on the final wall and a short layback to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: It's a little easier to step left onto the boss out left, rather than using it as a handhold. Also, there's nothing wrong with runners behind the holly, it's not off route. The top was exciting today as it was wet and covered in a layer of slime, I really thought I was going to peel off the top!

βeta: a Beautiful delicate start leads to good gear, a strenous pull/leap to a good horn off a smear takes you level with the top of the crack of neb buttress and more bomber gear. From here the crux awaits you can get a friend 2 placed sideways in the flake/slot opposite the holly. then a high rockover and some small crimps enable the hanging flake to be grasped and a sprint to victory up excellent holds.
