Rockfax Description
The leaning headwall is superb. Difficulties increase as height is gained, particularly after the large mid-height pocket. © Rockfax

βeta: Quite a soft little tick at 7a but who's counting? We had fun, it's a good route, it's definitely not an easy route, and I recommend it. I was a bit surprised something with that much glue on a hold would make it to top 50, shoddy workmanship, wouldn't have them cowboys in my house

βeta: This route is definitely not soft if you are short! I can see why it's 6c if you are a normal height though.

βeta: I think it's true to a 7a grade. Raw deal in cheddar is easier, Slytherin in Gilwern is easier both are 7a this deserves its grade.

βeta: Not technical moves, just sustained and gets pumpy. Try it.. You won't regret it
