A badly-named route starting at a wide groove right of the roof. Climb the groove easily to ledges (possible belay). Finish up the pleasant slim groove above. © ROCKFAX

Finished up Zero Hour to avoid an angry gull - must come back for the top of Nightmare though as it looks great. The Combination we did was a really good option in its own right and probably somewhere around HVS 4c/5a

Interetsing route, a bit disjointed. Start up to ledge is pretty easy but feels a little bold. Obvious belay so we broke it in 2 ptiches. Imagine there would have been a lot of rope drag otherwise. 2nd pitch much nicer, interesting rock and good layback, bridging and a few undercuts thrown in, nicely technical and 3d. Gear is there but some is a bit fiddly and some pieces just ok. Best to sprint to the top!

Led first pitch, then had to retreat due to repeated dive bombing by an angry herring gull! A well-named route :)
