Enjoyable - especially the romp up the big jugs at the start

Steep juggy start, then easy walk to a tricky entry into the crack. A bit of a disjointed route.

Bit of a one-move-wonder getting up onto the slab and crack but worry-free starting from decent ledge and having a big hex at head height. Nice juggy overhang start - pity it wasn't twice as long.

First of the day, loved it so I did it twice! I think Alex liked it too - TR him and then cleaned the gear myself.

Went wrong on this due to Dave's interpretation of the guidebook, would suggest the route i did was more a HS. Went up the crack then left then right above the E2.

Better than its one star suggest and if it didn't fizzle out near the top would definitely be worth 2.
