Rockfax Description
Great fun. A popular introduction to the flowstone experience. The start is the crux, but save something for the strenny finale. © Rockfax

βeta: Really enjoyable route and first outdoor lead completed in one. Didn't find the begining overly tricky but the area just below the overhang takes some could footwork! Nice!

βeta: Would have been cool to climb it in original state, the sheet of flowstone at start is super slippy at mo, bit disappointing
