Had a little wobble on this. I think a combination of last route of the evening and getting spat off Sunshine Superglue, had sent my head a little west. Once I'd made the moves to get out of the tricky first section I managed to sort myself out and cruised to the top.

The start was much harder than I expected, felt a bit too tough for a warm-up but there you go... Slightly worrying run out.

Gets a star or two in the Over The Moors guide, definitely worthwhile. Plenty of gear too so I don't really know why it gets a fluttery heart in the Rockfax.
