Rockfax Description
A bit of a tussle especially at the bulge. Wearing a helmet tends to compound the difficulties and enrich the language. © Rockfax

βeta: Well named. Don't climb it in a cycling helmet as you wont be able to turn your head once in the crack. Oh dear.

βeta: Really not that bad. Very well protected. Top bulge is the crux (due to lack of footholds).

βeta: Fun route which looks like it will be a lot nastier from below than it is. The top bulge is a tad tricky.

βeta: Pumpy and a fun struggle through the bulge. The challenge is to try to do it without swearing!
