Hard climbing at the bottom with fairly poor gear at the crux for a VS 5a.

A good VS pitch, no push over but good holds and enough gear. Worth 2 stars.

Warm up. Kind of eliminate as a lot of holds were wet. A touch run out in places but good gear when you get it. Belayed at bolts and scrambled off.

bottom half was still really wet and slippery from the previous night which made for some interesting moves. Moving to easy moves in the dark up top.

higher end VS, good route but a few polished footholds are a little annoying.

Surprisingly good climbing compared to what I was expecting. Solid gear if a little spaced and a reachy crux move.
Quarryboy - Lead O/S - 03/Jul/11 with Rob Stanfield
Typical; hmm it's getting dark. Time for one more? - route! Dispatched without drama.
Only the start warrants the grade with the rest of the climbing easier and better protected.
