Rockfax Description
The clean-cut corner-crack is steep and excellent. The lower section has some polished footholds and is the crux, but the imposing upper part is juggy and proves to be impressive at the grade. Protection is excellent throughout. © Rockfax

βeta: Who says polished routes can't be fun ? The holds are so positive you hardly even notice it.

βeta: only tricky move can be overcome easily with either a fistjam or some slightly committing laybacking, and the steep section is juggy. Good climb at the grade.

βeta: Definitely the hard end of VD, and a good preparation for HVD. Didn't find the start that slippy (and used plenty of kneejams/armbars on the way up). Got the first nut in though, and then knocked it out on the way past, so just continued upwards till I found some better gear!

βeta: T'aint really that slippery. Or maybe it was just the strange knee jam manouevre I used. Lovely route though.

βeta: The slippery holds at the start are easily avoided if you stick to the corner crack from the very beginning. You'll need some techniques not easily practised at the wall though ;-)
