Tricky upper section. Badly bolted. Scary. Good climbing. I would say its better if you stick closer to the bolt line but you still have to move out right a bit at the 4th bolt. 7a imo
eugeneth - Lead dog - 18/Jul/12 with Dan Hale

Definitely 6c+. Quite run-out in places.
Dan724 - Lead O/S - 18/Jul/12 with Eugene

There aren't enough bolts and they're in the wrong place, but the climbing's good!

Hidden - Lead rpt - 08/May/12

stick to the bolt line and its a good 6c+. Still involves a little bit of left to right but isnt runout this way. Involving route

Found hard for grade. Looong moves on thin round crimps.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 05/Jun/10 with Laura Perry

disappointing way to end the day: going from 4th to 5th bolt doesnt feel 6c (certainly not if you go direct and going right feels way off route). youre not going anywhere if you fall but to keep sport feel this probably needs 5th bolt lowered. i wasnt really up for what felt like some committing moves to gain the next bolt so lowered from 4th. poor start, worth doing though as theres some good (reachy) moves above.
