Rockfax Description
A quality excursion packed with hard climbing and topped off with a well-positioned steep slab. Start at the thin right-leaning crack as for Rustic Wall. Move up the thin crack-line to a peg and make a couple of hard moves up left to a good pocket. Climb up right past a bolt to gain and follow a rightward trending, strenuous thin diagonal crack to a good hidden hold. Make a powerful pull up to a short crack in the wall above to good holds. Gain the recess above and from its right side move up onto the slabby wall and traverse left above two bolts to a small niche. Climb the slabby wall boldly, first up and then right to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the thin crack in the center of the wall to a peg and make a reeeeach to a mondo jug in the pocket. Clip the bolt and storm up and slightly right to where two cracks meet in a Y shape. Take the crack on the right to where is ends then move up to a little cave. Have a breather, clip two stonking blots and teeter up the lovely slab above.

βeta: The crimp rail on the slab just below the top is basically made of cheese, beware what you pull on!
