UKC

Rockfax Description
Follow the shallow curving groove up the centre of the face to better holds. Power steeply over the roof to reach the upper wall stylishly, or fail miserably in a mix of heel hooks and curses.
There is an eliminate to the right called Watson-Watt, 7a 6b, but is too eliminate for its own good. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Make a tricky move to gain the central crack which can be jammed or laybacked, and move up on improving holds for a rest under the overhang. Attack this using the obvious crescent-shaped hold, pull over with difficulty and finish more easily up the cracks above.

Unknown 1960.
