Mistook the route for Shit Happens, Actually. Finished it eventually, but with battered morale.

Using the 2000 Rockfax book and thought this was shit happens, I was expecting an 'easy in the grade' 6A! Not very enjoyable, lots of crumbly rock, especially in the middle section.

Great route! Pulled off a block half the size of my forearm but managed to stay on anyway.

Spent too long on the crux fingery section failing to spot the holds and figure the sequence. Once this was nailed not tough for the grade.
