Hard crux even for a 5+. Lowered from a maillon that someone had left a couple of bolts before the top.

felt stiff for 4+ even if I had twisted my knee the day before. getting to the shared lower off with del osillo was interesting and its nowhere near where the topo show it??

Massive sandbag!! More like 6a, route not where rockfax depicts in the guide, lower off situated lower than expected. Necessitates very difficult traverse! Be warned...

ChrisB.19 - TR - 21/Oct/12 with Allan

As many have stated this is more like 5+ and the latest RockFax update acknowledges this. However, even taking this into account, the ridiculous position of the lower off should prevent this from being a top 50 route - worth 2 stars maximum.
stonemikey - Lead - 13/Oct/12 with John Horton

This is not a 4+, more like a 5+. Went off route at the top (on a sport climb!), expecting the lower off to be at the obvious platform above the last bolt. Had to downclimb and do the delicate traverse left to the chain - a real sting in the tail!

david0811 - Lead dog - 16/Oct/11 with Will, Dave Riley

no way 4+, the crux is around 6a+ and it looks like some crucial holds have snapped off....
MrRiley - Lead dnf - 16/Oct/11 with Will Owen

hellboundblr - Lead - 16/Oct/11 with John Bayliss

1st route of the hol & we pick a top 50 4+ that turns out to be undergraded & with a lower-off 2m to the left of where you finish that needs a 6a traverse & move to clip. Also dashed lines are missplaced on RockFax guide - starts left of the bush where 13 is shown. The 6a branch off is much better quality.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 07/Dec/10

This is not in any way a 4+. I dogged my way to the last bolt before the lower off then backed out, not wanting an awkward fall on a slab. I have no idea why the guidebook lists this as a 4+ - it's dangerously misleading. I don't think it's even a 5+. Those giving it 6a are probably closer to the mark. Beginners avoid!
sarahlizzy - Lead dnf - 28/Nov/10 with Syv

Stuart Wildman - Lead O/S - 07/Nov/10 with Seema

Couldn't do the final move. It was within my ability but too tired. Also the route is not as it appears in the guide!

lovely but harder than the grade in the book - its an F5. Did an fantastic athletic move here where I put my foot in a break, pulled up with my left hand on a crimp whilst mantling with my right and then once I was at right arm extension, reached up for next left hold.

Very, very undergraded, long moves between breaks. Really poorly thought out lower off position and incorrectly marked in the new guidebook. Avoid.
