A brilliant route up the line of triangular grooves. The initial wall and groove leads to two juggy pockets. Surge up the wall above until a hard move right gains the finishing wall. Lower-off at the main break.

Stunning route of the very highest quality. 7a+ to the 'eye's' and a good shake, then blast to the boss. Shakeout and make the final ticky move to the first break. Relax, but don't blow the finish.

Brilliant route! Best route of its grade I've been on in the UK! Confusing finish with two bolts at the last draw...Great easyish climbing up to a great crux sequence which feels very exposed!
