Rockfax Description
Iconic Yorkshire classic blasting through the steepness in uncompromising fashion. A popular first f7C, hence you can't trust anyone's opinion on the grade..... From the block at the back lean out using the eponymous keel hold to gain the old chip over the lip. Then a big move for the high pocket awaits and an easier finish up the upper slab. Sequences for all levels of technical expertise exist, but the tall will always have it easier. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Mega-classic. From the well chalked block at the back of the roof gain the chipped hold on the lip via the keel hold and some cunning footwork; slap to the obvious pocket and wobble up the slab to glory.
