Rockfax Description
A varied line on good rock with a testing but well-protected crux. Start on a boulder at the base of a low, left-trending crack in the centre of the wall. Follow the crack left to its end and move up to a narrow ledge. Climb the slim corner above and traverse left to the base of a small staggered corner. Follow the technical corner and steep flake above to a final short wall and the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Solid at the grade and well protected if you have the stamina to place it through the crux section.

βeta: Thought this was quite bold and hard for the grade with some poor rock and poor gear. Actually felt a bit scared and was a bit pumped!
