Rockfax Description
A classic highball, follow pinches and crimps through the steepness to a thought-provoking finish via a big chipped horizontal slot. The sitting start is f7B. Going out left from the slot at the finish is worth f7B. © Rockfax

Deema Mozayen 20 May Sent dnf Good to work out all the moves to the slot/rail in my first session. Look forward to trying for the send upon returning with bigger pads and spotters. Nice to meet Dan/Smudge and James here as well.

Dale ? Aug, 2015 Sent dnf Was having a bad day up to this point. Didn't think I would get this far. After quite a few attempts managed to get the big hold on the lip of the roof prob about v5 to this point. I will go back and do the top out, as there is one more hard move to do. Maybe another mat and spotter. Had a big smile on my face after dropping down.
