Rockfax Description
A varied and testing hybrid which is both delicate and strenuous. Start right of Fly on the Wall at the base of the slabby front face.
1) 5a, 16m. Climb the thin weakness 4m right of the slabby arete to the overhangs. Move left under the overhangs to the arete and move awkwardly around it. Move steeply up and back right above the overhang and belay immediately below an overhanging corner.
2) 5a, 15m. Climb the overhanging corner and at its steepest point use good holds on the left arete to gain easier ground above that leads to the top. © Rockfax
