Rockfax Description
The finest route on the cliff! If you are passing at least call in and tick this one! The upper section is a classic layback although those in the know will jam it. There have been plenty of accidents on it over the years so take care. © Rockfax

FA. Colin Kirkus early 1920s 1922.

βeta: Careful lads! There have been a number of fatalities on this route, including quite recently. A completely different proposition soloing from top roping/seconding. Best to lead -take big friends and hexcentrics.
