Rockfax Description
A nice route although quite tough, just remember it used to get VS. Start by a left-trending ramp.
1) 5a, 40m. Head left up the ramp and into a thin groove. Move left into a deeper more defined groove and follow this to a steep slab on the right. Reach the cracks and psyche up for the exciting finale, a tricky layback to reach jugs and an easing of the climbing. Continue up to a belay just below the top.
2) 8m. As for Slab Climb. © Rockfax
