10m.

Rockfax Description
10m. The superb crack and groove are usually soloed as stopping to place gear is such hard work. Worth scary V4 above a mat. © Rockfax

FA. Colin Foord late 1960s. FFA. John Allen 1973.

βeta: Remember "accidentally" soloing this in early'80's having got through the thin jams and then finding myself committed to finishing. Great little route.

βeta: at least E2. E1 6a implies 1 hard and safe 6a move low to the ground, this is a continuous series of unrelenting, powerful 6a moves woven into the sheath of E3

βeta: Such a great route / problem; thin jamming at its best. Hard to grade really. E2 for effort? The boulderers would have to leave their mats at home of course ;-) But with a nut or Friend thrown in quickly at the end of the immediate difficulties, more like E1?
