Rockfax Description
A fun route which has seen some frustrated attempts over the last few years since the demise of the hold on the crux. Climb up the right-facing flake to a roof. Swing right and pull over the roof to gain the corner above with difficulty. © Rockfax

βeta: Had a go at this on Sunday, and found that the large block under the roof is very loose - keep your belay out from under here!

βeta: I did it pre-missing hold and found it OK. I sent a mate up it a couple of years ago and could not work out what all the faffing was about until I seconded it. Its now quite a bit harder but fun in a strange way.

βeta: Also didn't realise there was a missing hold and found it hard. Definitely harder than a 4c move, well protected though.

βeta: the most awkward move I've EVER done! Not desperate, just frustrating! I'd say VS 5a

βeta: Climbed the route a couple of weeks ago as I was told a hold was missing. Definitely MUCH harder than before.
