Rockfax Description
A fingery climb, and the first of the superb flowstone pitches on this section of the crag. Start by climbing the wall just right of the bolts to good holds. Ascend the increasingly-technical wall via a thin move and small undercut to an easier finish on the left. © Rockfax

βeta: Fell on crux losing the onsight but tried it differently once I knew what to expect and the second go it went comfortably. Its a really nice climb and I highly rate it. Top 50.

βeta: i can nearly always manage 6C, either onsight or rest-assisted, but backed off this: crux felt bold / tenuous

βeta: Did this route way back in '94!, definately tricky 6c then, but I feel after a re-ascent yesterday this route should now be 6c+ in light of .the loss of holds low down and polish on the crux

βeta: There are two ways to do the crux- direct off the rather crap 2 finger 'pocket' which is easily a 6c move, or keep left to avoid using this hold. Can't recall thinking it was at all badly bolted, but was a bit loose near the belay as I pulled a brick sized lump of mud + shingle off in my hand.
