Nice route, some exciting moves towards the top of the groove when it trends right. Seemed a little bol(si had no gear in for what felt like the crux).

I'd say this is high on the HS 4b grading, the crux move is about 4b but getting gear in before it is tricky & in an awkward position, same goes for part way through the crux. I decided it was safe to just climb through which lead to a potentially longer fall.

Hmm. Didn't have my leading head on today. Got about 2/3rd up and not happy with my gear, my head, the route, or anything! Seemed harder than I remembered. Backed off, down-climbed and lowered down from above to strip the gear.

the climbing was quite easy and nicely exposed but the gear wasn't always the best, still not poorly protected or bold as such.
