Well worth doing. A bit polished with some nice laybacking interspersed with good rests and gear

A lovely climb, if it was longer it would be worth more than 1 star!! Polish did not effect the route for me.

Really liked it, a little bit dusty although that doesn't distract from the experience too much, same goes for the polish. The lower-off is a bit dodgy. Soft touch for Peak limestone VS?

hard start, couldn't be more polished than if someone had taken a buffing machine up the route. Though still very enkoyable none the less

Byronius Maximus 13/Aug/09 Lead O/S

Bouldery start was pretty much the crux I thought (and hard for 4c), although different style to the rest of the route.
