Great climbing but the bottom half of the first pitch is very run out. Beware the nervous HS leader!

Very nice route and great rock. Easy climbing no harder than 4a but the sustained nature and long run-out sections - on the first pitch particularly - call for a steady approach and just about warrant the HS grade. Nice moves off the belay to start the 2nd pitch.

Great fun. Perfect rock and no people. Chris P1, Colin P2
