Rockfax Description
Great technical face moves, but the contrived start spoils the overall feel of the route. Don't touch the chimney, it is off limits. © Rockfax

βeta: I think the moves at the start are great - technical and sustained with a great (and hard) rock-over after the third bolt but perhaps I wouldn't have discovered this if I hadn't needed more than one go to do the thin moves above the overlap. One of the hardest F6c+ routes I've done - perhaps I'm rubbish at slabs.

βeta: If this has been overwhelmingly voted as a 2 star route, why hasn't it been transferred as such in the guidebook? Well worth the two stars, really varied and balanced and the chimney doesn't feel too close.
