Rockfax Description
A fine line and climb. Start at a left trending groove that is next to a huge block lying on the ground at the base of the crag. Take the groove to an overhung niche at 9m. The crack above is a bit of a fight but has good protection possibilities. Where the climbing relents the climbing is then up easier cracks to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Is there some historical reason why this climb is only HVS? (It even used to be VS!) The lower moves are hard, and the layback contains two consecutive 5b moves with no rest in between. To me this is low E1, even with the excellent protection available.
