Rockfax Description
An exciting direct line. Climb the blunt rib on the right-hand side of the face to a flake. Follow this and, from the top of the crack, climb the wall via a long reach or short hop from the snapped flake. Finish with a flourish. Stopping to place a cam above the crux is pumpy but a good idea if you are struggling. © Rockfax
