Would hate to be a severe leader doing this route. The desperate start rates more like a vs for first few moves, then polish in the crack means next metre or two feel hs but after that its nice and easy. Can fly up it after the initial struggle.

my favorite climb to date this !! this is exactly why i love cragging. we've looked at this before but my leader could swing into the groove, (not the song) not on this occasion! he made it in after a few attempts, then began to make some rather strange noises! ha ha. best 26m ive done, trouble is we needed more ! maybe grey slab??

Despite entrance to the groove taking afew attemps, got there in the end (gave up on this climb 3 months back). Once in the groove there's a crucial gear placement that marks the start much easier things ahead. Pleasant route (after some initial cursing!)

And with Barra, slipped on first move only 3 inches from the ground, started again and completed cleanly in rock shoes. Barra completed cleanly in approach shoes, Chris couldnt make the move due to boots and height (not necessarily in that order) so instead of replacing boots for rock shoes, he replaced his boots for bare feet!! Stubborn or what! Last route of enchainment, before heavens openened and the rain came in! Wet walk back to the car... not barefoot I hasten to add.
