The tiniest of fingery holds and a hard section packed into a few intense metres gives the ultimate Rubicon route (only two repeats in 15+ years), which may only be surpassed if the wall right of Caviar is ever climbed. Easy 8c+ - what an oxymoron!

It was me and Parky. We knew it would never go free (HA!) so graded it a provocative A2.
