I had to avoid a couple of big rocks when belaying, good route though

Decent route although the top section is a bit loose and sketchy. Took a few goes to work out the crux, but got there in the end!

Gained the bulge but flew off after making a snatch for what I thought would be a good hold. Finished by bypassing the borehole on the right.

Climbed clean this time with neat use of the borehole.

Worked out the crux move direct through the borehole, definitely a 6a+ move at least. Going right like everyone seems to do isn't the line.

possible to go direct over the bulge, but requires some reach, 6a if you go right

Route deviates from the line significantly and seem hard for the grade.

Hard move going directly up the borehole. But the move is there. Much easier if you go right ..... Jon!

Committing move over the bulge.

ritchierich 11/Sep/09 Lead dog

For 6a I'm guessing you don't climb over the bulge via the bore hole, went right of second bolt.

DrGav 21/Aug/09 Lead O/S

Very nearly popped off going for the good hold at the bulge. Reachy and 6a+! (ie not the original 5+)
