Rockfax Description
The blank leaning wall is a merciless exercise combining fierce climbing with very poor gear. Follow Phoenix in Obsidian to the large ledge and move left to below the centre of the wall. Climb the ferocious wall left of a low overlap passing 3 poor pegs to the diagonal break. Move right and up to a sloping ledge, before taking the finishing corner of Phoenix in Obsidian to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
