Rockfax Description
A great test of nerve and ability; protection is adequate. Start up a crack then swing out left and make a fierce mantel to reach a creaky flake. Up this then move left up a shallow scoop to a ledge (crucial small cams). Layback up and teeter right, or move right and climb the headwall direct - a bit harder. © Rockfax
