UKC

Rockfax Description
A striking route. Start part way up the ramp below some overlaps. Climb the steep crack to gain a disappointing horizontal break. Move right to a semi-rest below the upper crack. Big powerful moves up this on jams of various styles may lead to the top before your arms explode. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The obvious powerful crack line up the buttress is sustained and adequately protected.

βeta: Tried this about 7 years ago going up the left hand crack then traversing right, failed miserably this way. Today went direct up the groove to base of crack as CC guide description and did it 1st go.
