Rockfax Description
One of the best routes at Stoney, with a great variety of bold and strenuous moves, and enough gear to make it safe - even if it doesn't feel like it. Save it for the lead instead of top-roping it. Follow the elegant groove to the roof, then move left and climb the tricky wall to a break (pumpy-to-place gear and scary position). Step right and stand in the break (baffling for some) then climb the still awkward upper wall. Wonderful. © Rockfax

βeta: Certainly a grade harder than Cabbage Crack, possibly (dare I suggest) worth low end E5?

βeta: Solid E4 with a bold blast followed by a safe, trick move. Solid gear if you look and don't panic (easily said when you've done it many times!)As it says, wonderful.

βeta: Too reliant on one small gear placement as I recall for E4
