At the top you can go direct or use a right-hand by-pass which turns the route into an excellent 6a. The first bolt is old but the rest are okay. © ROCKFAX

First fall of trip, found this hard for 6b+ due to polish and wetness below crux.

Hidden - Lead β - 08/Nov/11

Rubbish, how on earth is this 3*, 2* would be generous for the logical right hand line. A nice route to a disproportionately hard blind finish on sharp rock.
jkarran - Lead dnf - 06/Nov/11 with Smith

Cool moves, but defo 6b+ if you stay left....

barney800 - Lead dog - 07/Oct/10 with Katherine Shaw

Hidden - TR dog - 07/Oct/10

Really nice climb, with crux certainly at top! Suddenly, the bulbous wall loses all good holds and leaves you with pockets suitable for 7bs...nice climb though and great climbing below too!

WARNING - the snapgate at the belay disintegrated when I opened it, meaning the chain and second bolt is no longer connected to the absail ring

max_chan - Lead O/S - 19/Apr/08 with Lou

The end was hard for me. All the bolts were also very rusty so I was having a hard time trusting them.
