Excellent, lots of steep, hard bits interspersed with rests and nice balancy climbing up the flake groove on P1. Unexpected cruxy sequence towards the end of P2. Sue led it in one, which made for a nicely sustained pitch.

Fantastic. Pumpy but without being too desperate and good gear when you need it. Wouldn't want to do as one pitch - reckon the rope drag would be pretty annoying..
Found some suprising moves when hold weren't quite what i expected - a really satisfying lead.
Definitely worth the stars!

This was great fun, not easy and a good adventure. Found the 'stiff corner' just below the fault pretty exciting, thought I might not make it, but got a semi desperate finger lock in the back and pulled through! Most enjoyable route at swanage so far.
