Steep, and pumpy. Really had to fight for this one. As hard as I've ever had to work for any VS (although admittedly I am rubbish at steep things). Not technically hard, just hard work!

We got up at 5:45 to try and get some climbing in before the forecast rain. The rain started just as we were preparing the abseil and we only had time to do this one route. We were shattered at the end of a long weekends climing and happily packed up at the end of the route by mutual aggreement. I'll be back to this crag though as there are lots of good warm up routes here and the rock looks great, loads of fissures and texture.
