Rockfax Description
Despite the name, not very technical but bold in its central section. Climb straight up the slab (harder for the short and unprotected where it matters) until you join the traverse of Pedestal Route. Finish as for Pedestal Route, or more in keeping, out right as for the Neb Finish to Hollybush Crack. © Rockfax

βeta: very little protection until about 10-15 meters up. 5 meters from the top there was some dirt in the holds beware!

βeta: You can get pro on the bottom bit by clipping two opposed nuts together in the pockets. Maybe 4b for the short

βeta: Agree the Neb Finsih is the best bit, although also considerably harder than the rest of the route and felt very bold. The slab is quite bold but on positive holds so feels ok.

βeta: I reckon it's only 4b for the short. HS 4a is bang on.
