Rockfax Description
A popular and sustained face climb. Start right of a low overhang below a difficult-to-see bolt. Climb up broken ground, then head up right. Sustained climbing up the bolt-line, past a fingery and technical section at mid-height, gains a fine finish. © Rockfax

βeta: I thought the crux clip was really tricky. I put a longer one on it.

βeta: Failed on a thin layback move high up in 80 degrees plus. Great climbing as far as I got.
