Rockfax Description
The long groove above the right side of the pool 'rising from the lake', can be greasy after damp weather. The start is probably the crux though the layback moves on the upper section feel tough; beware the final blocky corner - it is getting shorter! © Rockfax

βeta: Id been told this was a stiff VS4c...it was a joy all the way, solid gear and some great moves. Not as hard as great Harry IMHO. A route to do again some time

βeta: I'd ignored this route for years, because it looked a bit grim - but it's great! Lovely jug climbing up the crack with some nice laybacking in the central section.
