βeta: Didn’t know this wasn’t meant to be climbed until checking UKC after day out. Couldn’t really tell from Rockfax topo that the route had changed. Due to rockfall. Gear is now terrible and the top part of the climb doesn’t exist. Had to rock over onto Abraxas to escape out. Even that was brown trouser time with holds breaking. Lesson leant check UKC!
