Struggled desperately on the lead. Went OK when toproped on the lower off. I just seemed to have got hands, feet, body position and everything wrong on the way up. Very good despite some slippy holds.

Second time I've done this great route and I think it deserves 6c as it is steep, intimidating, hard to read and pumpy/goey.

Climbing wall style pumper. Glad Greg left me the clips in. Seemed like a 6c

Warmed up on this and it almost beat me getting it onsite. Found the moves really hard to read when moving left at half height. Went up and down few time from a rest position to find the right holds.
