Very nice route worth 3 stars in my book, higher up it's maybe only tough F6a climbing but the bolts are spaced enough to add interest all the way!

Tricky start, lovely crack/groove above. Was this pegged out?

Had many attempts at a move pretty low down and eventually gave up. I couldn't reach from the big pocket to the jug so was having to do something hard to the left - repeatedly, because of the swing when I fell from just above that section.

Dogged this after spending sometime trying to climb throug hte bulge about 4 feet right of where I should have been. Couldn't be arsed to redo the start. The upper groove is bloody excellent though. Also worth noting that unless you have big cahunas you will need a clip stick and a 6 foot friend

First bolt very high, and was a bit wet at the top. No time for the clean ascent on this trip.
