8m.

Rockfax Description
8m. From a block, climb the centre of the protruding rib, passing just to the left of the nose by a couple of strenuous pulls on crimpy holds, to reach much easier ground. © Rockfax

βeta: Need to make sure you keep hands off both aretes for the 5a moves. No more than 4c otherwise.

βeta: All over after the first move, but a good move though. Think the gear I put in would have hurt me more than soloing it if I'd fallen off! Good confidence builder.

βeta: left hand side was one move then easy to the top, low 5a i thought, right hand side easier

βeta: I found this route to be surprisingly satisfying. Not sure about the grade though. I forgot my rock shoes, but still found it to be much easier than the grade suggests. The right hand arete at 4c seemed over graded as well.
