Mark lead 90% of this, but didn't fancy the top-out, so I rescued him then seconded it. Finished on the left arete rather than the right, which isn't quite the line in the book, but seemed to be where the polish was. Bottom section a bit green, but really nice moves to step across in the middle.

Due to our lovely wet summer, it was a bit green at the bottom. By the time I got to the top, it was a bit of a rope dragathon. A nice climb though.

This is what 3* Severe climbing is all about! worth the walk over from the quarry just to do this one!Climbed the groove then stepped right so as to do the hand traverse back left and so to the ledge,brilliant top section up the flake and wall.great views from belay.

The first half of the climb is very good loads of places for gear and the cave bit is fun just be kind to the locals who have nested in there, the pigeons can be very moody! Top half after the ledge the big flake no where to put gear so had to be creatives with two 120cm slings a wire gate and a size 3.5 cam sling that over the top of the flake to give protection incae of fall but the grip on the flake is fantastic, top bit after the flake fine no protection but grips good enough enjoyable climb!

Bit manky at the bottom. The overhang above the cave is overcome using the two cracks either side of the disc flake and a lovely bridging technique. The final move over the upper overhang off the flake (which can of course be avoided) is really good, there is a massive jug on the top block. Brilliant climb, but with a lot of rope drag - extend placements.
