Fell off just after the peg, pretty pumped out.

Cool route, though not sure it deserves to be termed classic. The move to the threads is 5cish, not too tough. Pulling around the bulge is okay, though not very fun when the holds are already wet and you're being rained on...

The 'difficult move' up in to the curving overlap is not that difficult. The moves past the peg are pumpy/technical. Dont think the route requires the Rockfax 'big arm' symbol but definitely the pumpy symbol. Good route
