Overhanging wall above is quite tricky, had to climb down a bit to clip the bolt in the middle of the overhang.

Nice mix of slab then overhanging finish. If going more left to tackle the overhang then it's 6a+ as there's big jugs all the way.

An awesome route - really fun with a nice mix of climbing types. The big overhang at the top looks chossy and impossible, but is neither. A starightforward series of jugs with great exposure take you to the top.
