Too steep for Justin at end of the day. Nice climbing if you power through the steep bits.

Got tired, had a mini rest and then gear got stuck in little cave so needed another rest to retrieve. Lovely route.

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!

My first 5a lead! Not a technically hard climb but pretty steep for the first half.

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.
