Rockfax Description
A great route with a hard, well-protected crux. Climb the cracked wall to the right of the slab of rock at the base of the crag to the overlap. Pull through this to gain a single crack in the upper headwall. Make tough moves past this to easier climbing above and a ledge. 'Beached-whale' off the ledge via a weakness to an easier finish up the final slab. © Rockfax
