The bottom in particular is quite entertaining.

Sue finished up the cracks on the right, which seems the natural line after the moves right

Really nice route. Balancy in places and thuggy in others, a nice mix.

Bit of a sandbag, in all senses of the word!

monkey moves left are good value, better than it looks though a little more traffic wouldn't go a miss.

The picture of Andy Scrase soloing this in Dave Jones's "Rock Climbing in Britain" just sums up gritstone for me.
