Actually quite a serious trad route, with loose rock and unreliable pro, E3 probably. Great route though, would be a classic in Britain.

Superb climb. Pleased I seconded it cleanly. NB - Wasn't sport when we did it. Mark led it trad at E3 5c. Adam climbed in the middle. I came up last with rucksack and stripping the gear.
