Rockfax Description
20m. One of the best routes in the quarry, steep and pumpy but with good runners to catch you if/when you finally run out of steam. Follow the crack to the break then step right and make long moves to reach the continuation. Sprint up the flake to a breather in the easy chimney before topping out. A solid E1. © Rockfax

βeta: Sustained and brilliant. All the tough bits are on the first half, bulging as it is. Loads of gear with plenty of wires and small cams. Once at the base of the layback flake drop yer left knee for a wee breather, bung in another cam and off ya pop to the top.

βeta: not technical but very pumpy and long. its like two normal steep e1's stacked on top of each other with no rest in between. i was happily leading e2/3 when i fell off this first. if you do it and still feel fresh head rightwards beyond yellow wall to find heatwave (e2).
