Rockfax Description
Pleasant climbing punctuated by some fairly tough moves. Start below a semi-circular cut-out above the first break. Climb to below the upper wall. Sustained climbing gains a small ledge from where one last blind move reaches easier ground and the top wall. © Rockfax

βeta: first attempt at a 7a (more a trad fanatic really but kinda getting into the portland experience). got it onsight though i have read it is low in the grade. the crux certainly felt hard and actually was hard. excellent climbing all the way. was quite pumped after the crux and so everything after that felt pretty tough too. great route.

βeta: Trend left at half height, very easy to end up on the top half of 'Through the Barricades' to the right, as I did. Good route(s) though.

βeta: The crux comes straight after a no-hands rest and is a stiff pull on a small hold, followed by a stretch for a jug. Post-crux, it's pretty sustained all the way to the top. Excellent.
