Rockfax Description
A well-positioned route. Climb easily to the mid-height ledge, as for Shape Shifter. Ascend the groove above to a steep finish. © Rockfax

βeta: Really nice crux. Definitely various ways of doing it. Technical bridging on ok holds was my preffered way.

βeta: Flake by the finish is loose - top half is solid, bottom half (sidepull) looks and sounds dodgy.

βeta: Blew the crux, found it reachy. You can avoid the bridging by some thin face climbing out right though it's further from the bolt. The top is run-out but not hard and very safe.

βeta: I on-sighted this and found it surprisingly soft for the grade, but hey I'm not complaining!
