Rockfax Description
Magic indeed. Climb the fingery and technical wall, easing with height. Sadly the route was chipped by some half-witted technical dunce, though the worst of the damage was repaired a few years back. This grade is for leading with wires threaded over the old bolts, and Friends in the top break. It is E6 for the solo. © Rockfax

βeta: Back about the time he did the first solos of Right Wall and Cockblock, Phil Davidson used to down solo this. That said, it has got harder with abseilers kicking off small holds, and after the chipping incident when Buzz filled in the chips too well. Little welsh git.

βeta: I think it waas Pete Chadwick who repaired the holds. He mixed in some of the sand from the quarry floor to improve the texture and colour but your right, it's not quite the same.
