gave this a go on top rope to see if it was possible as a solo, managed it okay, but don't think I have the bottle to do it as it's so green and some proper sketchy moves, although being tall helps as you can reach through a few moves.

abseiled the line first to give it a brush. E2 5b as per the new BMC guide is probably spot on, the crux is low down but the climbing is fairly sustained all the way. Possible gear in the crack to the left when standing on first sloping ledge?? Good climbing

too green/very slightly damp tonight to lead, good climbing one to come back and lead/solo maybe after a clean with a brush just to make sure as the gear looked as poor as the guidebook suggested.

Some lovely moves but surely more like E3 5c? Impressive lead by Pete.

Absolute sandbag at E1 5b! Felt like 6a moves for shorties, no useful gear either. E3 6a maybe?

Top-roped this quickly after Gary did Mort Wall. Felt solid 5c to me, and no gear. Would think it more like E3 even without the lichen.
