Rockfax Description
A fantastic pitch that is loaded with lots of fine, committing and very pumpy climbing. High in the grade. Take the flake-crack to a narrow ledge. Starting on the right end of the ledge, pull past a bulge (old peg) and climb the wall above to a protruding block. Continue to a crack before making a short traverse right then up to a shallow niche (old peg). Move out right and up (spike) to a small ledge and rest. Climb the wall above the ledge and move right into a corner/groove that leads to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: No 2, 3, 5, 7 and 8 wires, no 5, 6 and 7 offsets, yellow dragonfly, blue totem and cam, yellow totem and 2 silver cams (could do with 3), purple totem and 2 purple cams (could do with 3), green totem, red and yellow cams, lots of extenders. Preplace the belay as it needs some largish gear.

βeta: Tat on the pegs after the traverse needs replacing. Watch out for the giant bird droppings on a couple of the holds towards the top.
