Rockfax Description
A superb route which follows an intricate line up the wall. Start in the centre of an undercut roof, below a left-trending grooveline. Pull onto the wall, climb the groove then, at its top, step right into another groove and follow this to a roof. Move right around this then make a hard move back left above it to a flake/pillar which leads to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: However there are lots of good rests between the hard moves (definately nothing harder than 5b)

βeta: Yes - a real classic, best route ive done all year by far - very sustained but always interesting and never desperate (although that last groove could be a point of failure if you dont find a rest beforehand)

βeta: I lost count of the technical cruxes (four?). Each one different in it's own little way. This is a climb with everything (including the sting in the tail) to recommend it.

βeta: Agreed - E2 5b would be more accurate. I kept waiting for the "sting in the tail", and after leading Ricochet I expected more than I got. Not that I was disappointed though - an awesome climb!

βeta: I think E2 5b is a better grade. I'm not sure where the 5c move is supposed to be but then I went straight through the final roof rather than traversing right and then left. Absolutely awesome route!

βeta: Total classic, varied and technical throughout, though no moves harder than 5b really. At the top you can either pull over the right end of the roof into the niche or traverse round it, steeper vs delicate, your choice! The final crack just requires a quick layback.
