Meant to do a quick repeat of Womanless, went too high and was climbing Trouble by mistake... Pumped and couldn't reverse, so got lowered off. D'oh!

Nice central section, independant from surrounding routes, but very dodgey at the top. No way was i topping out through the grass direct.

Enjoyed this on 2nd last year but better on lead, soft E1 but a great climbing on good small holds. Defiantly worth 2 stars

Really nice climb, easy initial section which builds confidence for the commiting moves higher up. Gear is plentiful for a large cam set. I topped out slightly to the left at the top as there was too much vegetation and loose rock to go directly over the tio.

A nice direct finish though it has too much VS climbing for a great line at the grade
