An excellent climb. Very strenuous on arms to get first bolt and into the cave. This is where I rested. The rest of the climb is easier and very enjoyable.

Basilius - on the rock. Hard start then great rock and features, just too short. Lower off better than Rockfax 2005 suggests. 10/10

The pull over the cave is hard work, but the rest of the climb is a treat
