Not *** really. There are no 5b moves on it although many 5a, some of them harder but never desperate. Really spaced and not great protection. Only way is up.
Chris Sieradzki - Lead O/S - 19/Apr/15 with Hooo
Good interesting climbing all the way. Nice to second, as I could commit easily and there was hardly any gear to remove! Don't think I'd have enjoyed it on lead.

PaulTanton - Lead O/S - 07/Apr/15 with Ken McBride
Seconded previously 1 year ago but didn't remember anything about the route in particular. The route has fun moves on rock with excellent friction. The lack of gear makes it very bold in places, and routefinding requires care. The crux is very sustained, don't hesitate here! **** route. 5a/b seems accurate

My first lead of the day after following Al up Psychotic for the first. I clipped any peg that felt on route. I really enjoyed the route with some spicy run out. I agree with other's thoughts about feeling 5a all the way through but there was just one moment that stalled me.

i didn't really think it was soft for e1 and this talk of micro wires is fairly misleading as there was just two placements on the whole route.brilliantly sustained the whole way with a very serious start(if your belayer uses the bolt belay back and left of the start of the route and you walk round the back of the tress it will prevent a factor two fall)and a well runout but easy finish.quality!!

Probably HVS if you clip the pegs in reach (well, about 1 move away) on the routes to the left and right. Nice climbing though not all that independent. Final cemented peg is really loose though there is other gear in the vicinity.

There's a run out section (just one or two poor micros). If there was just one more peg hereabouts the whole route would be a more logical HVS 5a - I didn't think there were any 5b moves, just sustained 5a climbing.

This is a nice route, but about 6m above the belay ledge there is a hollow sounding block, which has a crack running right around it. This block forms a hold which I was unable to avoid using. There is no gear between you and the belay at this point, and the fall potential is bad. Don't necessarily be put off the route, as it's very good, but one day I think that block might well come loose.
