Rockfax Description
Steep, pumpy and awesome. This route takes on the steeper side of slate, and it is obligatory to shout 'Whey aye man' from the lower-off, or scream in frustration should you fail. Start up either the slab or the steep wall, to reach a bolt at the top of the slab. An exciting traverse right gains the niche, before a hard move left past another bolt provides the first crux and leads to the pumpy headwall. From a large flat hold, make a difficult move up and right to the arete before the heading back left to the lower-off. © Rockfax
