Poor gear until higher up but it's easy going. Would be a great route if it weren't for the ledge.

After bouldering up to look at the start didn't fancy it without a runner, so rigged a long sling from friends in the first break of the upper section to protect the moves up onto the ledge. Good contrast of balancy start, then steeper stuff for the second half. Assuming most people wouldn't go for my runner solution to protect the start I'd say this is a bit of a sandbag at HS.
