[Cubbo on Isabella Rose - New Route, 2 kb]23m. Climbs the flake and groove line directly to the right of "Llewelyn ap..." and shares the final bolt and lower-off with that route. Start at the obvious flake feature and climb directly through some broken rock to an awkward move leading to the 6th bolt. Above this move off left to easier ground and the lower-off. Some loose rock. Will improve with traffic. Bolted with 6 10mm Stainless Steel expansion bolts.

A poor and rather worrying route - gaining the second bolt is particularly scarey! Nowhere near as good as the other routes on the slab.

Needs a clean to make it safe! Some very loose large blocks about 60% up route, didnt like the risk of knocking them down onto belayer, so lowered off.

Between 5th and 6th bolt my foot slipped twice on a crap foot hold then I completely fell from the route. Nice technical climb until then, shame the rock is extremely loose.

Very loose in places. I pulled a large shoebox sized piece of rock off between the 5th and 6th bolt. That whole section looks very unstable. Enjoyable climb apart from that.

As mentioned above will be better with traffic. Beware, theres a lose block on the right by the 5th. Nice enough tho at 6a and gets you to the top
