What a line! Had a few moments of self doubt on the overhang and nearly fell off when I fluffed the sequence on the crux.

Kieran Duncan 15/Nov Lead β

Incredible climbing, probably my favourite route at this grade. Has a little bit of everything, and all the rests and jugs are right where you need them.

Brilliant pitch. Only 6b+ if you can't climb in 3 dimensions. 6a otherwise.

The guidebook says "magnificent when dry and clean". Should have twigged that this meant it might get a bit tricky when dirty and slightly wet. :-P

Long enduro climb. Nothing particularly hard y9ou would call a crux but sustained, and slightly polished.

Gave up after slipping off wet holds at the top, great climb though.

Ollie Rattue ??/2011 -

Blew onsight after missing key hold. Finished route after that. Great climb.
