DescriptionVery cool crux moves on a slightly underwhelming route.
Climb up a mossy slab, pull a mantle at the first bolt. Continue up and right on the slab until you get to the vertical bit. A surprisingly tricky/tough move gets you established on the steeper climbing where you get all good holds and it gets REALLY STEEP REALLY FAST! Hand traverse right across the roof with a swing of the legs and a throw of the hand you gain the anchors which are clipped from a jug.
The route can be wet.. so... yeah...
