Rockfax Description
The big corner has a hard start and a superb, pumpy finish. High in the grade. The ivy needs stripping back from time to time. © Rockfax

βeta: Beware of loose blocks (where birds nest used to be) out to right of first route, very loose.

βeta: it is buckets at the end but just after the roof they become hard to find and not quite as 'buckety' as you'd like. Fell off this from these last moves whilst having the anchors right at eye level.... very annoying and very pumpy... good 7a.
