pretty bold when you step out onto the left wall after the chimney nearly popped off on the awkward move up then to another awkward topout for the first belay

I found this scary.

More like hvs 5a with sparse gear. Would be tempted by bran flake over this! Oh and the wall is steeper than it looks.
thecurlyone - 2nd O/S - 15/May/12 with Kate Lawrence

Led first pitch. Didn't like final blank wall at top of P1, so moved right and continued up narrowing chimney, which is more in keeping with the rest of the first pitch. Moving out of the chimney is bold, but necessary if you need to continue up! Abseiled off top of P1, as ran out of time.

taw - AltLd - 07/Aug/10 with Dave sb

led second pitch. The last and second last moves on this are pretty tough and there is not a huge amount of comfort to be sought in the gear.

I led P1 and its not VS 4C, more like HVS 5a and hard. My partner had climbed the route before and agrees that P1 is hard and bold. Nice though :)
