Brilliant route. Lovely slabby moves and ok gear- until I was at the final ledge and my last nut popped! Took a long time to psyche myself for the slightly awkward mantel move above a groundfall. Somehow got in the zone and flowed through the last moves, felt amazing.

Contrary to what it said in the guidebook, I found the protection to be fine if you looked for it (cams and nuts), except for the top bit, which was much easier climbing, but no gear. Nice route.
