Rockfax Description
Well-named. Climb the steep wall initially up a shallow groove, then centrally with increasing apprehension to a final desperate sequence on ancient bullet marks. Originally done with a (hand) pre-placed peg runner by starting on the right. The direct start was added before it was finally soloed - high in the grade! © Rockfax

FA. Andy Pollitt 1988. Ben Tetler (solo) 1999.

βeta: For a solo ascent, E10 would be nearer the mark. Far more serious than Equilibriam
