Top route. Got shown around by a local activist which was nice.

More like a sport route so hard to assign an E grade but friends (as in guidebook) still needed for top crux. Very enjoyable.

Good but not three stars

Superb pitch and quite exciting in the upper groove. Also did 4 fairly new un-named sport routes further left 2 at F6a one around F6c+ and a long F6b.
