Something of a treat - a good quality clean line at Millstone with very little wear. Climb it before it gets polished. Full marks to whoever cleaned it up. Didn't feel esey to me, but it was very hot and sweaty at the time.

Fell on the higher section with thin layback crack. Fortunately gear held and just landed on the block below as rope stretched. Thanks will for taking in. Fell because my foot popped - felt quite greasy/sweaty at that point!

andyob - Lead dog - 2010

First grit route after a month off due to an expedition. Expected it to be nicely sound, but it turned out to be overgrown, green and insecure, more like a mountain route (though good gear)!
