Rockfax Description
Stunning and bold. The technical crux is getting into the groove - good gear - then superb moves gain a 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
