Amidst all the sport I just had to pick the obvious line. Looks fabulous. Fortunately no angry crows were in the nest.

Good climbing and good gear with a big feel to it.
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 26/May/15 with Andy Durkan

Worth doing, with some good bits in the second half, as long as you're prepared to put up with the dirt and loose rock on the first half (and a little bit in the second half, too). Lots of gear after the first 5m.

Pretty good, a little loose at the top.

Different Steve - 2nd O/S - 12/Jul/14 with Emma Hawkins

Some worthwile moves. It was unclear whether there was/ is an in situ ab at the top, so used the convenient sport lower-off to the right.

Loose at top. Two brilliant threads so feels very safe

Unfortunately a nest of very tiny baby birds was on the route, so decided not to climb past them, they were in a foothold plus I didn't want to knock rocks onto them.
