Rockfax Description
This line offers some amazing climbing in the upper section. From the base of the big chimney, climb its left edge for 7m, to gain a thin crack in the steeper arete above. Push out onto the hanging left face, and tackle the bulges above with gusto, trending leftwards to a spike; finish directly. © Rockfax
