Rockfax Description
A desperate route up the centre of the slab with weird moves. Lack of holds on the blank slab require several rockovers with timed momentum from the previous rockover to make progress - ultimate Dawes. f7C above mats © Rockfax

FA. Johnny Dawes 1994.

βeta: JD climbed direct from the end of the runnel - repeated by Adam Long and Pete Whittaker. Most now climb slightly further right, using the original RF smears with the LF, and RF on the LF Velvet Silence smears then rocking back left to the seam at the top.
