[Long Climb, Liz leading, 3 kb]The central rift of the buttress gives a fine outing, steep and quite awkward, as far as the capping roof. A stomach-traverse used to be the way to go, though nowadays there are less extreme ways of getting left to the final short crack. © ROCKFAX

What a gorgeous climb. Loved it from start to finish just wish it hadn't ended so soon. Fantastic and definitely worthy of it's three star rating.

Hilarious climbing, got proper wedged in the section below the slab, laughing trying to reach the next hold, eventually maned up to get out. Great climb, all moves and styles covered.

Picked this for a battle and got one! Don't think I've every been so out of puff on a climb before. 30 deg with overhanging/jamming/thrutching...none of which are my strong points! Great route.

yorkshiresherpa - 2nd O/S - 16/Jun/13 with Tommaso D'Odorico

I thought it was HS! Not surprised it is now graded VS! Tricky middle section, ended up spending too much time trying to place gear I couldn't place, getting pumped and almost thinking of dogging it out. But pulled myself together and wedged myself in the above crack and up to the finish. Brilliant route!
