Good climb! Went left over the starting bulge this time. Found a really nice heel helped me with an otherwise mega reach. Partner did not need said heel. Repeated clean after once with a rest. The bridging part of the chimney was wet so we had to climb it like an offwidth.

Very beefy start. After a bit of feeling around and finding the best holds I thought it was doable, but we left it for another time. No guidebook so we weren't sure to go left or right at the start (left seemed easier).

A good route for warming up and getting a feel for the area. After the start it let's up.

You know you are feeling knackered when you actually get tired from pulling on f5 holds.

Moves around the low bulge were good, but seemed stiff for a 5. Worth a star.
