Would be a very good route if it finished where the good rock (and gear) ends. Instead you get 5m of steep grass with occasional loose rock which brings onto the summit. Which is grassy, loose and unpleasant and from which you have to descend slightly to get to the shocking pegs and thread which looks like it's stuck behind some mud. Richard fell seconding just after crux when a hold came off in his hand. Should be a lower off where the good rock finishes. There, I said it

what an ace route, take 2 stars from me, its a shame its not longer, and the top is on suspect rock if it wasn't for that it would be 3 stars. ANCHOR IN REALLY BAD SHAPE.

Really enjoyed this route, steep climbing through the overhang and a strenuous exit.The belay/Abseil anchor needs replacing urgently!

I thought it was a good route when I lead it in '96- enjoyed it enough to do it twice that year. Belayed by throwing one rope down to the gully on the other side and geting Mark to tie it to a tree, i.e. there wasn't any good gear on the summit (a manky peg or two, in the wrong place). Worth doing if only for the summit experience.
