A lot more difficult than I was expecting! Very committing and awkward move around the jutting nose, then still tricky moves getting over the bulges!

Struggled to find any protection on the first shelf which made it feel a lot more exposed than it really was.

Really enjoyed this route - after every couple of tricky moves, there's a ledge you can easily stand on to get protection in.
