Excellent crimpy slab climbing up the bolt line to the right of Pettifer's Wall. Moving left at 1/3 height and back right at 2/3 height will test anyone's technique, but the route is still steady at the grade.

Technical on the feet! Whenever it seemed crimpy I had to remind myself it was a slab, and it unlocked itself. 6c would be fair IMHO. Nice though.

fluffed the crux again after waiting a year to return, should have been a retro flash, saw the move and completed it immediately after the fall

Lovely technical route which can be climbed without much need for an abundance of strength.
JLS - Lead RP - 30/Nov/13 with Koon M.

Conditions not ideal, could not feel fingers or toes and route was slightly damp. Other than that it is a nice technical 'slab' climb.
Koon - Lead RP - 30/Nov/13 with John Sharples

Took a rest at the crux to figure it out. Excellent climbing. Very technical and nice crimps.

Failed to read the route correctly on the first go. 1st RP. Best climb of the day. Routes will all benefit of a brush!
