Awful, a definite sandbag. I've never been so pleased to get to the top of a route. All of the holds are covered in loose gravel or vegetation. No obvious places to place gear in the last 1/3 of the route. Couple of horrible mantels to top out, a slip here was definitely going to lead to a 'decking' incident. Avoid

Frightening lack of grip on the 2nd to last move due to grit on the holds. Almost didn't make it!

The climb would have been trivial if not for the masses of loose grit on some of the more vital holds which never seemed to ever get clean. Dirty as. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Compaired to the other climbs that r graded vs in this quarry this is an e1. Truly horrible climb especially the top- still have grit in my teeth. One to miss.

Chickened out of this, went part way up the flake and placed a pretty dodgy wire, I had no choice to extend it as the rope drag would be horrible, spent atleast 5 minutes doing this hanging back on a flake gradually tiring myself. Finally began moving right onto what I think was the way to go, the moves looked relatively tricky for me, protection was poor, so I decided it wasnt worth the 2/3m deck out potential and downclimbed - possibly to save for another day. Half proud of myself and half disappointed. In the long run it will give me confidence on backing down on anything I don't want to commit myself to, but it was only a Severe. Not sure what to think.
