Sustained and technical initial section with a vague guidebook description. Took a belay below the wide crack. varied and excellent but spoiled by the jungle finish.

Not quite as fun as Guiness overall though with a memorable finish. Pokey start above a fairly dodgy flake, so so middle section, gets better at the vertical crack. Fun traverse and a great, pumpy airy layback to finish with perfect protection.

First pitch some hard moves above poor gear to get to the overlap. Once you leave the lower flake you have to keep moving Last pitch is wild with a couple of powerful moves needed

Tried the first pitch myself but failed half way just as I was getting onto the slab so partner did the first pitch. Second pitch was not a problem. Definitely want to try it again leading the first half.

Great route :) Removed the in-situ abseil thread as one hidden section of the rope was worn down to 3 strands of the core!!! Had no rope to replace so top out needed unless you have tat; ~1m would be enough. I wonder when this was last abseiled on!?
