Not that shit! Bit loose in the middle and hard moves at the top but not bad climbing at all. Bit sharp though.

'orrible. sharp and dusty. got to the roof and then realised the huge undercut sounded very hollow - cue rapid descent...

Not too bad! Only a touch harder than Julie Ocean, and of the same quality, just more dust. More traffic and it would clean up to respectable quality.
