Excellent route and totally underrated. Pumpy first section, loads of good gear, and then steady away all the way. Fantastic climbing, worth 2 stars

Gear looked tricky on the lower wall. Good climbing on a bit of st govans that isn't polished rubbish.

Tried to lead but was just getting super pumped trying to get the kit in and work out the moves, felt out of my depth so came down. Still fell off on 2nd!

really nice climbing: open, clean and well-protected, highly recommended. low in the grade and 'easy' if you have reasonable fitness / can recover on good holds.
