UKC

15m.

Rockfax Description
Start up Fighting Torque but continue direct with some hard moves over the bulge and up the arete. An easier variation heads out right to a small groove at 7b+. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The route can be climbed via a sequence to the right of the bolts, up the scoop, at hard 7b. A great variation but much easier than the true Under Duress line.

βeta: Didn't finish the route, was working the crux and broke the flake off (almost hitting Dan!) to the right, the flake broke in multiple places and was then removed due to rockfall hazard. Probably hasn't changed the grade, but the 7b+ is probably a grade harder.
