Fun if short traverse. Abbed off after 1st pitch, rest didn't look worth it!

Got caught in a shower which made everything a bit more careful. First traversing route I've done. Good stuff.

Soft VS at most, really quite nice though. Beware bad loose patch towards end of overlaps.

Followed the break, between two slabs, interesting but easy climb. Gear could have been a bit challenging if I had lead.

VS. p1 20m 4c good climbing, p2 15m no tech grade, loose rock, odd line.
bpmclimb - Lead O/S - 15/Apr/11 with Clare

A really nice line! The crux for me was the central section of the route, at the lowest point of the stepped up slab. Take some micro wires. . .
