[Deranged at St. Govan's Head, 3 kb]A superb route which follows an intricate line up the wall. Start in the centre of an undercut roof, below a left-trending grooveline. Pull onto the wall, climb the groove then, at its top, step right into another groove and follow this to a roof. Move right around this then make a hard move back left above it to a flake/pillar which leads to the top. © ROCKFAX

Fab climbing, but Not sure I thought the top was harder than some other bits really.
Shauna - Lead O/S - 20/Sep/13 with Jules

Awesome, quality climbing between good rests. Good gear. Top move is probably the hardest move on the route but not sure if it just felt hard cos I was knackered!
