Rockfax Description
A nice and varied climb with adequate protection. Climb the roof above a narrowing in the ledge, then go direct up the smooth wall on finger edges. It feels bold to start and again to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: Cams in the break for the headwall plus a small wire high on the left before committing helps. Starting roof can be well protected with cams from underneath, but requires a high foot and big reach so a fall may be interesting.

βeta: The gear at the start of this route is poor, however a very good small wire (or two) can be placed in the crack to the left of the head wall, and is therefore well protected. Harder than it looks from below!
