Came off low down. Plastered in chalk and polished to fuck. May have been a great route once but not in its present state.

2nd go today. A hard move low down then very pumpy on the upper wall, right at the limit when I clipped the chains. wouldn't have argued with 7a+ on the day.

really beautiful climbing, i think my fave route to date. Got it 2nd go. Crux is near the start then lovely climbing with a bit of a scary one bolt section up top. Really brilliant.

An exercise in staying calm! Great climb, full on pumpy.

A contender for the best sport climb I've ever done, exhilarating exposed climbing with some long moves between good pockets and tufas.

Did the new extension which is 40m and probably 7b+ with one hard to read bouldery section- makes a great route even better!
