We both thought this was going to be harder then it was. Rounded topout but gelt good on it. Didn't feel close to 5a although looked harder for the short. Much nicer route then it looks...

Lovely climb with a sting in the tail if you're not used to slopers :-) Spicy feelings at the top chuffed to work out how to get over the top. First of the day after spending an hour and a half scrambling along the ridge to find the buttress.

Nice climb. Slipped off top move having foolishly not chalked up before leaving the safety of the crack and break...not a good move on slightly damp and greasy rock. It's all about that one move!
valentinesbabe - 2nd dog - 20/May/12 with Kevin Tithe

slipped at the top out, bugger, should have had it clean. Got back on and finished it.

Nice climb-not as intimadating as it looks- the final mantle needs a steady head-but found it straightforward.
