Found this very sustained in the top section, tried placing a nut in the grove but ended up leaving them all hanging from the crack and running it out.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 28/Jul/12

Seconded after backing off the lead. The moves up to the ramp are pretty reachy if you're a shortarse. Brilliant route, top could do with more traffic.

odox - 2nd - 18/Apr/10 with Tom Pitchforth

very very green and bold start upto the ramp which was a mossy/lichen slab! Crept right into the crack and followed to top - fine route with loads of good gear. Steep at top to belay ledge with a wonderful view
