The obvious rightward slanting groove rising from the middle of the crag. As the groove peters out, climb twin crack upwards, avoiding the overlaps on the right. Either step left for the original finish, or step rightwards to the top of the crag.

Fantastic route - just keeps on giving! An interesting thinker that keeps you on your toes and well worth the whoop on the topout....

Miserable. Got up to the bottom of the start of the climb. Put some good gear in, but just couldn't commit to doing the route. Checked the gear was ok and downclimbed. Then climbed back up to get the gear out and downclimbed again.

Awesome climb with a nice bit of layback crack climbing, the crux of which is a nice bit of vegetation growing out of it! Pretty sustained throughout although a couple of little places to catch some of your strength! Highly recommended!

Great route, really varied climbing. It just goes on and on. Seems like the final step left into the steep finishing section doesnt get climbed much as there was a lot of lichen and some of the holds are loose - take care - or step right for what looks like an easier and more popular finish.

L.P Trad HVS,5a Lots of places for medium to large wires.

The Ivanator 17/Aug/11 Lead dnf

I was assassinated, quickly and efficiently ...only managed about 5m after the steepening, polished holds in crack not as good as expected, didn't trust gear and felt the pump coming on backed off. Need to be fitter before I next try a strenuous HVS lead.
