Unpleasant move to get over first bolt - either fingery and exposed or finger jam... and dangerous. After that sustained with another powerful move to get into the niche

Got to the chimney first try, couldn't figure out the move. Tried again, rested on the first bolt until I figured out the easier way up, then was clean from there. Wouldn't mind coming back, although the right block of the chimney made some creaking noises...

Dodgy getting above first bolt, fell and spun into wall. Clip-sticked the rest of the way. Unpleasant

Great fun! Possibly the best route this side of Winspit.

Second attempt after struggling with the top section of the crack. A good climb but some hard moves in committing positions. Thank god for the no hands rest!

Only had one shot at it, but got the wrong side of the crack above the last bolt. Got pumped and had to take a rest. Will go next time.

Horrible route. Got to the third bolt and was not comfortable so backed off.

The move up from the first bolt was not obvious to me and took a few attempts to workout something that should work when fresh. By then was too tired to RP, but hope to get it next time.

First time I tried a year or 2 ago, I could not pass the first bolt. Better this time.
