Rockfax Description
The stunning hanging groove; brilliant but only for the bold. The technical crux is getting into the groove but is well protected (easier for the tall). Superb moves above this gain a psychologically draining rest point at the top of the groove where even breathing feels precarious! Slopers out right lead to the psycho-crux pull onto the arete with a high kick for a toe-hook, much gusto and a strong will to live. © Rockfax
