Rockfax Description
One of Portland's very best routes, ascending the white headwall via some exquisite moves. Low in the grade. Start at a bolt-line just to the right of a low corner. Climb the lower wall and then make a rising traverse left to a thin crack and tiny corner. Climb the thin crack and finish up the right-hand bolt-line. © Rockfax

βeta: Oh come on Vladimir! This is not hard for 7b+, compared to others both in Dorset or elsewhere in the UK. You'd be hard pushed to find a 6b move on this. It's just a bit of a fingery stamina rig. Many would argue that it's 7b, but I would maintain that it is 7b+, but not by much. However, the grade aside, it is a very good route.
