Not quite as polished as I was expecting, certainly no worse than the bouldering round the corner.

Not a great first climb of the day - harder than I've done before and no proper warm up. Couldn't manage the polished stuff. I'll be back...

howlingbaboon - Lead O/S - 29/Aug/09 with Peri

as not up to leading anything, and a debate started as to whether this climb was so polished it put new leaders off. we did it, and thought it easier than VS. It is polished, but most of the polish is on the jams, which makes them more comfortable rather than making it harder!

first limestone route, horrible. Mud, polish and a grit orientated climber does not bode well.
