Rockfax Description
A steep but juggy pitch which travels through some wild territory at the grade. Start beneath the jutting block at the overhang's widest point. Climb up to the block overhang and pull out across the roof on massive holds and with excellent gear, to a grassy ledge (possible belay). From the right-hand side of the ledge, continue up the face above, heading slightly rightwards and then back left. © Rockfax

βeta: Get your cameras ready as this is definately one for the photo album. I attempted this back in 2004 but didn't have the strength for final move out. I'm glad to report a successful and clean attempt on Sunday.

βeta: Overhang strenuous but well protected. I bottled the unprotected finish to the right though.

βeta: Good route. Arrange gear with some nuts and a cam, then power on out. If your not too pumped a good nut can be arranged mid traverse through the roof. As suggested finish is a bit pants.
