Disagree with guidebook - I think its well protected in start and finish with 2 tricky moves at top.
jonny_098 - 2nd O/S - 09/Apr/15 with Alex Cutbush
Felt more like 6a, very sustained route with a large gear less section in the middle

After seconding Jon on it a few years ago.
Definitely not E1, the middle section is runout 5b which may involve hitting the ground if you fall off. The top section is very hard 5c, albeit very well protected. E2. Very good climbing though. 3 stars.

bad gear at the start, but a couple of sinker wires just below the crux move at the top.

Gutting when you know that you got up this two years ago with more 'aplomb' and the first ascentist was watching!Hayden was encouraging, wouldnt do a demo and confessed that he'd put the route up 20 years ago! Desparate top 2? metres.End of season target

Awesome. Bold section - may have been able to lead it, wouldn't want to fall off the bold 5b section though. Gear is reasonableish. Crux is awesome!
James Oswald - 2nd O/S - 07/Jul/11 with Jon Stewart
Anthony Allsopp - Lead O/S - 02/Jul/11 with Jon Coutts
Most of the route felt reasonably bold as the none of the gear seemed bomber (it felt adequate but I like a nice bomber piece every now & then). Gear for the 5c move is bomber.

Crackline saturated after heavy rain, might of missed out on a few foots/holds. Crux is so so thin, might enjoy it if its dry!
Jams Crwca - Lead O/S - 03/Oct/10 with themadbrown
As thin as 5c gets at this crag. Feels run out in the middle but the gear on the crux is bomber
