Rockfax Description
A truly fantastic pitch. Sustained, well protected and with a pressing crux move high on the wall. Start below the very thin line of cracks in a slight depression on the upper wall and just right of the rope sling at the midway break on Mother Africa.Move up the wall on good holds to a narrow ledge. Harder climbing past white blotches gains the horizontal break above. Sustained climbing through the bulge and up the line of thin cracks leads past a jug, but without much respite, to another bulge. A hard couple of moves up and right past a peg gain a thread and the final short wall. © Rockfax

βeta: E4 or E5? Many a pint drunk discussing this. Harder than Mother Africa, well more sustained really. Who cares, it is a fantastic pitch, as good as any E4/E5 in the country.

βeta: Great gear and 1 tricky move. One of the best E4s around.
