18m.

Rockfax Description
18m. Climb the narrow buttress to the roofs and pull through these powerfully, hard for the short who really have to s-t-r-e-t-c-h and might want a 5c tick. Trend right to finish on Jeffcoat's. © Rockfax

βeta: found this quite hard, used seige tactics. (up to place gear, climb down to rest) good route though, one hell of a stretch to get that hold on the slab!!

βeta: Didn't have a problem with the overhang itself, but, er, there weren't any holds after that. How do you get onto the slab above?

Got to the lip of overhang got some good gear in tryed the long reach a few times Ooo it is a long way I can't reach ou oh it's starting to rain reverse reverse to the safety under the overhang had a good rest. A few spots but the rain never came so got back to the lip and got the good hold first time. It's not a jug just a good hold. Hard 5b move for me. Tall people would find it a grade easier short would find it a grade harder. All in all great fun
