Solid severe climbing, easy first moves on OK jams, up to the niche which has nice gear, then work out a sequence to pull over this which turns out to be unexpectedly easy and not particuarly stenuous! Finish is easy. Finding I can almost walk up these severes without much thought at all! Very nice moves throughout on some good gear, will be sure to do it again next time I'm up there! Dad followed with ease, yet again!

Beautiful severe climb, a great climb to demonstrate what being on real rock rather than an indoor wall is all about. An absolute pleasure!
