Didn't particularly enjoy this: committing moves with little protection on the lower wall at the start & quite a lot of suspect-looking rock from then onwards

One big pitch, first very vegetated, lose and light on gear, top bit good.

A bit stiff for the grade

Climbed it (cleaning as we went). Abbed back down the route to clean and remove some dodgy rock. Now a much more pleasant proposition. Upper section is more solid, worthwhile route.
