Rockfax Description
A well-rounded classic though too much of a struggle to be a real three star outing. The striking hanging fissure has a brace of awkward starts (easiest on the left) and a wide awkward exit. A couple of tricky-to-thread chockstones help protect the main difficulties of the route. © Rockfax

βeta: 3 star route for me. The battle, as mentioned in the description, doesn\'t detract, it enhances!

βeta: Climbed this eight years ago, and do not remember anything about it. Need to lead again as I had a great time on it.
