Rockfax Description
Another enticing climb in a similar mold to The Brink of Solarity but slightly tougher, and with a bold start. Start at the base of a long thin crack 5m right of the vegetated corner.
Climb carefully to good wires at 7m and then take the well-protected remainder of the crack to a double bolt lower-off just beyond where the crack curves left and fades. © Rockfax

βeta: Lush route. Despite polish and damp patches it was fab. Gear all the way up and a 2 bolt lower off ..what more could you ask for.

βeta: Thread at 2/3rds height is for Sandbagging Simon, not this route.

βeta: Please don't top-rope through the lower-off staples; they're starting to get worn. Take a couple of krabs/QDs up with you.
