really nice route, a bit run out in parts and also easy to drift into The Litch, but great climbing all the way

Hard E1 bold climbing at times.

Top end E1 indeed, well good. Not pumpy if you plan ahead properly. Thought the final slab was a bit bold.

Pretty surprised by how hard it was, in the end not so technical just epic calf burn. Like the others said the line doesn't feel that great and i ended up on the lich, but it still has some good climbing in it.

Good sustained climbing, but the line's a bit shit -- it feels really squeezed in. Accidentally wandered onto The Lich beneath the top overlap.

Line seemed quite contrived. Moves at the top were nice though.

This was really good, Hard 5b climbing with no rest's, pump fest. Good lead by Dale, he was well hacked off when he rested on the rope to regain balance only to find he's missed a foot hold which gave him the balance he needed.
SGD - 2nd - 15/Apr/12 with Dale

Brilliant route top end E1 alot of 5b moves reasonable gear for Avon, worth 2 satrs. Got annoyed shud put this route as dogged really rested on gear for about 10 seconds before getting back into balance dam dam dam. Was such a short rest still felt it went clean.

What gear there is, is a bit hard won, but I'd take more than just micro wires (rock 3, 5 and a cam 0). Hard for the grade, but surprisingly good - worthwile

The guidebooks description of 'reasonably protected' on applies if you like lots of spaced out pegs. Don't bother with a rack, just take a few slings, quickdraws and micronuts.
