Rockfax Description
Climb the steep shallow groove on the right-hand side of the overhanging face to a good ledge. The holds are better than you might expect though the runners aren't. Finish up the short overhanging crack just to the left, or escape right - tut tut. © Rockfax

βeta: Superb route. Start into the groove and you will find yourself on the ledge, knowing you've just passed 4/5 5b moves, but not necessarily knowing how. The moves just flow into each other very smoothly. Do NOT finish right - take on the final hanging crack as it's more scary than technically hard.

βeta: There's a BIG difference between escaping right or going over the hanging crack. Going over the hanging crack would be a bit contrived but not doing so felt a real cop out.
