Fell off top move near top on first try so missed onsight. Pulled rope and repeated clean ground up. A good line. Yes it's contrived at the start but the move on the pockets is really good. Then the climbing through the breaks above is also good. Quite challenging still higher up if you're not very tall and if you are strict about staying on the line.

No side runners and direct finish. Mental crux on the bold start, technical crux at the top. two or three 5c moves.

Seond time after a fall first time round. Only one hard move at the bottom. Found the top really nice but not hard.

Hard to start and hard to finish, nice route.

Some pretty hard moves but got it clean, could imagine it being somewhat scary! Mike teetered off right only to find when he had finished there was an easier way!

Not hard for E3 but quite a hard last move.
