Climb the left arete of the recess and the crack to the foot of a groove which gives a steep and exciting finish. Traversing left along the prominent break is the exciting Overflow, E1 5b.


Good route overall. Felt this was a bit of a soft touch at 4c, but it definitely requires commitment in a few places. Found the initial slabby section harder than the 'offical' crux.

great route. lots of variety in one climb. Good protection throughout.

Superb. Crux was definitely getting off the ground. A nicer 'line' than the right-hand version.

I agree - superb. Very varied - slab, cave, corner, layback. I also agree that getting off the ground is the most difficult part. Luckily one can stand on the ground and place a nut in the crack to make the initial flailing amusing and not threatening.

A very decent climb, thought VS 4c is absolutely spot on. Protection is excellent throughout.
