Nice interesting route but HS at most. Finished (in one pitch) up another 'VS' just short of the end of the traverse.
Mike Kiss - Lead - 07/Aug/14 with Old man Andy

In one pitch, scrambling up to the main ledge after the overlap petered out. The climbing felt straight forward but strangely unsettling (I suspect it was just my brain not functioning right yesterday...).

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.

Look out for loose rock at the end of the overlap... Big lump gona come away soon...

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

pheotleyr - 2nd β - 18/May/13 with Ben

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. . .
