Rockfax Description
12m. A little beauty and doubtless harder than you will be expecting. A fingery layback and long stretch gains the break. Pump left along this quickly and delicately climb the wall right of the arete. © Rockfax

βeta: Far too overhanging for my liking. A sequence of thin 5a laybacking moves followed by some overhanging thuggery with good, but tough to place gear are not things that belong on a VS. I'm sure it's very easy if you climb much harder than VS, but if you don't it's the hardest VS I've ever tried.
