Rockfax Description
The steep crack in the open corner is awkward to start (easiest on the right) then gives fine sustained bridging and laybacking. Protection is good throughout. © Rockfax

βeta: The bottom is hard to protect but there is a nut just at the very bottom of the first flake.

βeta: Beatiful moves, good route, well worth the 3 stars. Awkward start, yes, but it wouldn't be HS without it... And on a dry September day, the friction was perfect!

βeta: Agree wit hall, a very nice route. I bridged it all the way with one slight layback to stop me falling off near the top. Start is delicate, I came in from the right, starting right up the crack looked nails
