Rockfax Description
Brilliant face climbing, despite the drilled holds. Make a very hard move to leave the block and gain the dodgy flakes. Then sustained crimpy wall climbing gains better holds and a sprint for the top before you pump-out. Finish right or escape left. © Rockfax

FFA. Mick Fowler 1976. Climbed by Ed Drummond in 1973 with two skyhooks for aid. The tiny holes he drilled are still there..

βeta: The jug block at the top of the groove has a crack round the back of it and flexes quite a bit, so take care on it.

βeta: Lassoing the spike or tring to flick in a nut from below is bloody hard and the placement seems pretty marginal. The top wall at least has positive holds.
