nice route, bit pokey but the climbing isn't very hard

Not sure if I could lead this but a nice top rope with some committing moves.

Jake barely paused for breath. The climbing between the gear is really top notch.

Great moves. Very contrasting to the rest of the crack udgery at Hen Cloud...

Not hard for an E1, but groundfall potential at the second bit of gear. Short, sharp and fun

Really nice... Committing. Found it not too heavy though, hardly thought about the horrendous consequences of failing near the jugs... The moves seemed to suck me in quite securely

Good sequency climbing up the 'petrified vine'. Protection just about adequate for the crux.
