Rockfax Description
A remarkable climb of great difficulty and boldness that reaches the slim slanting groove on the upper wall via a thin traverse above the guarding overhangs. It is usually started by abseiling to the first belay on The Main Event. Follow The Main Event to its peg, then traverse left across the smooth wall to a protruding peg on the edge of the slim groove. Pull in to the line of the groove and climb it to its end (peg), passing twin pegs on its left wall. Move left to meet First Night Nerves (bolt) and then head rightwards up the wall to finish up a flake. 50m long. © Rockfax
