Excellent climb, good line, holds when you need them and still challenging. Annoying peaty top out, and decided to stay roped on to get off the cliff top over the slope above.

This routes looks innocuous from below but is steep and very in-your-face. Found it harder than Twin Crack Corner so I'd give it VS 4c. And contrary to the description given above it isn't juggy. You need to be a competent jammer.
