This may be short but it's certainly not sweet. "A fine selection of holds" says Rockfax. I can only assume they are being sarcastic. It's hard work and a little scary but worth it. Had to rest twice on one move and once on another move. There's a lovey rest about half way up on a big ledge which is a perfect spot for photographing climbers on other routes.

Had a great time on this climb, only to find a couple of shoe laces at he top to protect you if the rusty lower off ring decided to give way!!
