Rockfax Description
Heart-stoppingly precarious! The crescent-shaped ramp is gained by a hard rock-over. Once established pad carefully up and right to glory. The route is as unprotected as it looks, the finish is very fluffable and the landing truly awful. © Rockfax

βeta: perhaps looks like a soft touch from the bottom, but the crux final moves, rocking over the ripple feel very exposed all of a sudden.

βeta: It's a long time since I did it (onsight 12 years ago), but at the time I thought it a soft touch for E5 6a.

βeta: Totally messed up rockover on onsight attempt. Couldn't walk properly for two weeks. Found it okay and did it first go when I went back. No cheating pads on either attempt.
