Rockfax Description
Excellent and reachy. Follow Legacy (or better Big Brother) to the middle of its traverse then cruise up the centre of the wall to finish up a short crack. The Direct Start is a stretchy E1 6a protected by small opposition wires. Remember, where there's a will, there's a way. © Rockfax

βeta: Starting from Big Brother and traversing the break left makes a better start with a fair bit of independent climbing which is steep and pumpy, and leads straight into the crux of Legacy. A fully fledged E1*** that way.

βeta: The direct start is extremely height dependant, when done normally a very delightfull route. Probably low in the grade.
