Rockfax Description
A superb route with a wild finale. Pull right over a narrow overlap and climb the wall on small holds (looks harder than it is) to ledges. Stuff the break with runners then swing around the rib and power up the hanging flake. Only the weak are spurned, though the timid may have a hard time too. © Rockfax

βeta: Chewed me up and spat me off like a little bi*ch several times while i was reaching up from the break to the seamingly blank wall. Great fun although smacking off the rock face bout ten times gets quite painful.

βeta: If you can get established in the upper hanging flake (crux?), then the layback moves up it are fairly straightforward.
