Steep juggy climbing. Scramble up to the left-hand side of the arÍte, step up and swing round, or climb the lower crack direct to gain a narrow ramp. Climb this rather precariously, then follow the cracks above to a large ledge. Finish carefully up the choss above.

Felt like a high E1, or very low in the grade. Well protected. Topping out to the right is fine.

In approach shoes. No way is it E2. High E1

Juggy and pretty pumpy, fun climbing though. Shame about the top section, topped out off to the right.

did all the hard climbing up to ledge then started having a bit of a nightmare on the choss at the top, pulling off rock/mud left right and centre, carried on to 1 move from the top but was too scared to top out- the gear is sketchy and who knows what is attached and what is loose. thanks to iggy for the top rope rescue! 0/10 would not recommend

1 rest. Should have warmed up on a sport route. Top out required a considerable rightwards traverse to poor rock and gorse. Birds nest just above the hard climbing with 3 crow chicks.

Nothing too difficult just more endurance required, great protection all the way. . . top out needs cleaning, ended up having to traverse over right to get up. Will be taking a set of sheers and lopers before trying again

Nice climb but let down by the top. Started direct up cracks to gain the ramp which seems like the obvious and best line to me.

So much easer this time and not pumped at all, must o had a bad head on the lead. Went straight up the front crack this time, more direct but less fun.

Really nice climbing on the bottom 3/4s, let down a bit by the top out. Just as I thought it would be; steep and very pumpy with good but spaced holds. Gear was great all the way, tho hard to hang-on while placing. Has been on the tick list since I first saw the quary, waited till I was relatively sure I could on-site it. Thought I was coming off at sevral points but made it to the top and was just about sick, lol was trying quite hard.
