Ground up. Fell off the tricky start a couple of times as I was going more directly which is very hard. Before loweringfoff and finding the easier method up the corner. Top groove is ace. Easy 7a and maybe should be 6c+ or maybe it jist suited me. Pretty good little route.

starting up the right side layback seems contrived. We reckon a direct start would be possible, but at a much higher grade.

Clip sticked 1st bolt due to loose rock at start & ankle breaking ground. 1 fall above 3rd bolt, got it 2nd go. 1 previous top rope about 3 yrs ago. 6c+ Good route :-)

Laurence Everitt - Lead O/S - 05/Apr/12 with Ruth Buckberry
