Rockfax Description
The right-hand side of the slab is climbed via a trio of mantelshelves - the first is the crux, though the one to reach the ledge of the 'bunk' is not without interest. © Rockfax

βeta: Yet another vote for the first mantle being the hardest. It felt quite delicate. Overall a good route with pleasant moves.

βeta: Agree that first mantel is the crux (nasty landing too). Last one is simple.

βeta: The first mantle is the hardest by far and requires total faith in frcition to even reach the hold. the top mantles are just a bit reachy and thuggish.

βeta: This is one route I found easy at the grade, even in damp conditions, but then I am tall. Easy (but reachy) after a slightly bold (and reachy) start.
