Gets a star because the top moves flow nicely. Poor rock/route considering the quality of much of the crag.

Great route, bit of looseness in the middle but nothing too bad, just got to watch what you stand on.

Loose and worrying.

Diverted left at the overhand, but probably very similar going straight up. Some loose rock, some good moves

Matt Shepherd - Lead O/S - 01/Aug/11

Have to say I thought this route was pretty poor. The number of loose holds (some of which were obviously polished or gear-worn) that I had to avoid pulling on was well into double figures. Perhaps the recent cold winters have done it no good? No need to detour left at half-height, obvious direct line is straightforward. The top bit has a few nice moves on to the ledge in the gully. P.S. unless I was on Lumb Lane instead of Lamplight, as I had no guide! I'm pretty sure it was Lamplight though.
