great pumpy climb; it started spitting and I found I was too nervous when placing the gear, so down climbed, shook-out and then finished it off. my second said it was worth the stars and really loved moves. "IF" it was lower it would be an easy boulder problem!

Possibly the only HVS and above route I've managed to onsight at Curbar. Low in the grade by crag standards, though harder than Maupassant.
Stig - Lead O/S - 29/Apr/09 with james oswald

whole route felt pretty outragous for the grade, bottled move across, but got it second go, then had a bit of a moment getting gear in for final moves.

Intimidating, but successfully climbed as I had read the moves. Both the seconds fell and ended up in the air. Good route!
