a good wee route. Hard to grade as the top section isn't that hard as long as you know the sequence. Sort of move that seems 5b when you can't do it but only 4c once you know how. Got Rob up there and his limit is 4c just now and he didn't struggle that much once he was given the beta.

Soloed up to the large ledge, lost my bottle trying to get up the overhanging crack and had a mini-epic down climbing. The firest section is great, will be back to complete on a slightly warmer/dryer day!
