UKC

Rockfax Description
Another great VS. Start from a small ledge and stance below the centre of the half-height ledge. The first pitch feels quite bold, and the second pitch has two distinct cruxes.

1) 4c, 28m. Climb the white wall above the stance to the break. Trend up and slightly right to the next break. Above is another break with a groove that leads up to the centre of the half-height ledge.
2) 5a, 32m. From near the left-hand end of the ledge, a short steep wall succumbs to a determined start. Good holds and gear are soon reached. Move up to the break and head straight up to the next break. Shuffle left along this and then make a hard hand traverse out right to get established on the wall above. Finish up the crack, exiting left at the top to the abseil station. © Rockfax

βeta: Nice enough route, started slightly higher due to wet stance. Not as good as Pel imo and slightly harder!
