Rockfax Description
Climb the slanting flake then move right to a crack. Up this to a niche then follow a thin crack to ledges. Move back out left for a reachy exposed finale if required. Some care is needed with the protection as wires in the niche tend to lift out. © Rockfax

βeta: A fine route - seconded it, then led it. And you can do it in 2 pitches if you want (as per the couple who went up after I'd led it - there is a reachy move (if you are under 5ft 6in) moving off the massive ledge at just below half height. My second (5ft 4in) wasn't happy with that bit. I loved it though. My 5th Severe lead - and I know it wasn't onsight - but hoping to get a good foundation, and I'd say this is a good beginner's Severe lead...

βeta: Seconded this barefoot, lovely juggy moves and good rest ledges, A bit of a worrying move of the last ledge!
