Bit of a slip on the boulder problem start but fairly plain sailing after that. Loads of good gear to protect the pull over the roof.

Lovely route and not so hard once you work out the courage for the top rock over (and exactly where the holds are. hehe). Pretty safe for the grade.

A hard-ish start leads to a simple middle section then (with faith in your belayer) the roof can be gained by finding the hidden hold before you pop off!
