A fine older bolted route up the crimpy wall left of "Diverticulitus", starting from the big ledge. Good moves on mostly good holds with the odd technical bit.

Access the ledge via an in situ rope just left of welcome to the cruise.

Upgraded and upstarred by popular request.

The walk up to the belay ledge could use a clean, had to climb a slimy vegetated boulder to get to it

A good technical challenge, some interesting rock overs and stretches between spaced holds. sustained but rarely strenuous. 2 stars and probably 6b+

Looks harder than it is. Good holds and quite slabby. Balancy and technical but not pumpy. Last couple of moves interesting!

Not really top roped. Used a mini-traxion to play on the route solo. rested every so often. nice lunch break!

Lovely route - pretty to hard to onsight I'd imagine. Felt hard for the grade.

Not so sure about one of the earlier comments 5a/b moves with a nasty fall are not suitable for a HVS leader but fortunately 4b/c ones are, which is how hard it is to gain access to the ledge. Nice route much easier than it looks from the bottom.

Was knackered, but got up some pretty tough climbs after a couple of attempts at each.

Climbed in the rain for the last two clips so made the top moves a bit edgy.Smeard with my knees for topout.Denim excels in the wet.

Very nice, some awesome high feet side pully stretchy moves.

Ab'd down to clean delaminating dolerite from top of route then top roped clean. Will lead another time. Everythings there if you have the reach.

one fall, good moves up top, middle section seems to be reach and pull due to lack of footholds, start is good. The ledge can be gained easily from the ground probably 5a/b moves with nasty fall potential should be no problem for a HVS leader.

Worth two stars of anyone's money...
