This climb deserves some stars - really nice route & not as hard as it looks once you commit to the moves.

A fun lead up the right hand end of the crag, with a delicate move near the top on delicate holds. Michelle went on to lead this - her 1st ever VS on gritstone!!!

Fell and rested in the move up to the overhang through lack of committal. Must do better next time. Definitely only 4c.

Couldn't find the copious holds the guidebook suggested would be there but it still wasn't 5a.

It's a tricky little move up the wall to the overhang. Great gear though.

Would be a three star route (for me) if it didn't have that ledge at 1/3 height.
