Rockfax Description
A classic up the slanting flake that bounds the right edge of the main slab; mild at the grade. Reach the flake via polished pockets then keep left (more polish) until is possible to outflank the roof and reach a stance on the right. Trend left above the big overhang (awkward to start) and finish up the airy crack. © Rockfax

FA. Morley Wood 1922.

βeta: When I first used to go to the Roaches (a long time ago) we always called this "A Route". Anyone still call it that? But whatever you call it, it's a cracker!

βeta: Don't know how the moves left on polished footholds on the face could be less than VDiff.

βeta: A very easy VD for the leader (even in the wet) but the start of the top pitch could alarm someone who only seconds VD!

βeta: Wonderful route for a (timid?) beginner to second - loads of options for hands and feet and lovely juggy holds by the polished bits.
