God I wish I could climb this! Hardest '5b' I've done in years and can't remember the last time I had to hang on the rope as much as this. Definitely not my style.

Nice crack climbing, quite featured and not as bad as I thought it was going to be

Still a bit midgy but the best day for this. Helena cruised it and I made a mess but great fun. Plenty of splendid jamming going on and once you find the right feet placements they are awesome moves

Holy crap! Not a good warm-up when you feel lacking in energy to begin with. Fell low down but came back to the no hand rest in the corner, then fell once more one move from the jugs. So awkward and steep. Amazing climbing though!

Excellent, pumpy climbing but never too hard. Could do with being about 40 meters longer

There are loads of e3's easier than this.

Stunning climbing, over far too quickly. Was a bit wet but it didn't detract in the slightest. Safe as you like and a gift at E2... old-school jamming routes are supposed to be hard for the grade, not upgraded!

Thrashed my way up this. Must have fallen at least 5 times. Great route though. Must come back for more when my hands have healed!

Fortunately was in the shade on a roasting day, or would not have got up it. Is in the shade until early afternoon on the summer.
