180m, 5 pitches. 1) 5, 2) 5+, 3) 5, 4) 5, 5) 5. Head up the slab just right of the vegetated groove. The crux on the second pitch features thin slabby moves that are a step up in difficulty from the rest of the route. Excellent rock with the exception of the last two pitches which are a little scrappy with some loose blocks on the final pitch. Well bolted where it matters, but with fewer bolts on the easier sections, a selection of nuts may come in useful, though probably aren't essential. © ROCKFAX

Led pitches 1, 3, and 5. Fairly steady apart from the thin moves on P2.

Had to aid the crux on P2. Absolutely brilliant route. Solid rock all the way and a strong line
benclimbing - Lead dog - 17/Mar/13 with Lisa Fullerton

I led pitch 1 (5a+), started to wander onto the 6a to the right but luckily Carmen noticed. C led pitch 2 which was very hard at the crux (probably 5c+ rather than the guidebook 5b+) but right by a bolt. I led pitch 3 (5b), unnerving crux as it was wet. Pitch 4 (5a+) was easier but still interesting, C's lead. I took the last (5b) pitch, which had a mountaineering feel - the rock wasn't as suspect as suggested. A superb route, fairly sustained at around 5b throughout, and well bolted (the guidebook suggestion to take a small rack was uncalled for).

Even pitches, move on the second is definitely high in the grade and it helps if you are tall.
Mike_Watson_99 - AltLd O/S - 05/Oct/11 with Fiona

Great climb with lots of variety. Everything from delicate slab climbing to juggy overhangs. Led pitches 1,3 and 5. Crux on pitch 2 is tricky if you are small and felt more like 5c+ than 5b+
Fiona Reid - AltLd O/S - 05/Oct/11 with Mike

Agree with others that the move on pitch 2 for 5b+ is significantly harder than what's on the 5b pitches - at least 5c seems fair.

trish1968 - AltLd - 20/Mar/11 with LC&CC, Sian

Debbie led p1, I led p2 & 4. Roger led p.3 &5. Most people found p.2 to be tough, I would give it 5c+. It is certainly harder than some of the other 5c's I have done this week.
Pete Nugent - AltLd O/S - 20/Mar/11 with Debbie Wilkinson, Roger Wilkinson

An enjoyable ramble which brings you quite abruptly to the summit ridge, but as Pete said, P2 is a sandbag. Better grade the pitch 5c+ or 5b/A0, which makes the route much more consistent.
