Rockfax Description
A Curbar rarity - as in not too tough at the grade. Twin cracks lead past blocks to steeper flaky cracks that are best tackled rapidly. Protection is good and pressing on is the best idea. © Rockfax

βeta: Def not low in grade, moves are never that hard but the steep pumpy upper section is quite difficult simply because stopping to place gear would probably result in a fall. Tried not to think about how low my gear was as i wrestled with the upper crack :-)
