βeta: Rockfax description is incorrect, though route finding is fairly obvious Start at an undercut wall, moving up and a little left to an obvious spike at 3 or 4m. Move up thin cracks one step to the right, then step back a couple of metres to the left into a shallow groove/to a thin vertical crack. This is (more or less) followed to a weakness in the overhanging wall above. Move up to a block on the left, then finish to the right via another weakness/short crack.

βeta: Surely you step left into the thin cracks? That\'s certainly how it\'s described in the FRCC guides, and how I did it

βeta: There's a very loose hold on the start of the route that will break of if pulled to hard I reckon.

βeta: Hold broke off, luckily was on top rope, don’t think it changes much but would have been a nasty fall on little to no gear as far as I could see.

βeta: Great little route, a lot of fun, with good moves and holds. Potentially very well protected, but offset nuts (dmm small silver peenut, yellow and blue offsets) are an asset. The gear placed from good holds at the start of the crux crack section should keep you off the ground with an attentive belayer but it would be a big fall. There's bomber gear at the top of the crux section to protect the hardest move but it's hard not to have to place this blind.

βeta: Obvious jug at the start is loose and may rip.
