Rockfax Description
Climb the flake to a break and move left to a shallow depression. Pull over the bulge then head left to a prominent diagonal thin crack (pegs). Climb this with difficulty to join Fear and Fascination at its shallow niche. Follow Fear and Fascination to the rest ledge then take the wall above it for 5m until level with some overhangs on the left. Follow a line of holds left across the wall to the base of a groove. Climb the groove before moving right to a ledge and break. Head up the wall to the next break and continue straight up (peg), to finish up a short corner. © Rockfax

Start at the Fast and Furious flake. Climb the flake, step left and climb the wall to reach the next break. Step left and climb the powerful diagonal crack (peg) to reach a junction with Fear and Fascination at it's old drilled pegs (Golos). Pull up and right for a few moves (shake out) to a better rest on a hanging ledge above (small cams). Climb the corner above for 7 metres, before following a line of holds left across the wall (crucial cam slot) and slightly down to the base of a groove (rest). Climb the groove for a few moves and pull right onto a ledge and break (good cams). Climb the wall to the next break and continue straight up the wall above, passing a peg to exit in the short corner at the highest point of the wall. One of the finest and steepest pitches of its grade in the country.
