Rockfax Description
Another route with a bold feel. From the mantel on the two previous routes trend right up the steeping wall to the break and a good rest in a shallow cave. Pull left out of this and sprint up the wall above. The route contains an old bolt runner above the roof, but it shouldn't really! © Rockfax

βeta: Nice route, good cam in pocket below crux so not too bold - certainly not worth E1. Hardest part by far is mantel move at the bottom! Aside from that E15a fine.

βeta: E2 in my book, way bold for E1, good cam though, but you would not want to fall off.
