Stunning climb. Fabulous pulls through the roof. Climb of the year so far (but it is only March!!!)

Where is the lower off?! There's a rusty looking stake but it doesn't seem safe. Other than that there are lower offs out left and right but they are not well positioned for this climb.

Unfinished business, now finished
madasten - Lead - 01/Apr/12 with Miquel

Harder and more worthwhile than it looks from the ground! Not very sustained. Was still pumped from earlier so couldn't hang the ledge once I'd got round the roof.

Annoying once I saw the others do the move to get over the bulge. Wide right foot. I was obsessed with the crack. Will have to come back to finish.

Thought this climb was truly terrible. Couldn't do the crux...if you're good enough to do the crux then you probably won't enjoy the easy rest of the climb.
dashitboarder - Lead dnf - 30/Aug/10 with Dad and Jess

Terrible route. Polished and harder to come down than to go up. Not recomended!

Jamming to pass the roof is the crux then traverse right.

Can't believe this route isn't starred, but then I'm a fan off both jamming and powerful moves on good holds! Thoroughly enjoyable route.
