Rockfax Description
A compelling line with great climbing. Head steeply to a jug then pull on a couple of finger-jams gains good holds and the base of the wide upper crack. This proves to be awkward, although hidden holds out left help. Low in the grade but pretty pumpy. © Rockfax

βeta: First few holds in the big crack pretty dirty, got a nut stuck below the big crack, will probably come out on a cooler day

βeta: Strenuous climbing on some good holds in the bottom half, with easier climbing up the off-width crack above. Good gear where you need it.
