Excellent climb. Can't think of a better protected route at the grade.

Agree with other people's comments. Excellent route, deserves 3 stars.
Kirill - Lead O/S - 08/Jun/14 with Charles Moreton

When I led this a couple of years ago, I thought it was a *** route and I haven't changed my mind. Excellent.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 11/Oct/13

On Helen's gear plus a few bits of my own. One of those times when you regret taking the "easy option" - discovering a cam blocking a useful handhold on the crux!
AJM - Lead β - 11/Oct/13 with Helen Seaborne

Lovely route with some nice moves.
AndyF - 2nd rpt - 11/Sep/13 with Mike

A gem of a route! Looks ok from the ground but when your on it you realize the quality, climbs so well, nice rock, good gear, just a pleasure!

_m.cox_ - Lead O/S - Oct/10 with Dave Talbot

A very good pitch that looks a lot harder than it actually is - that's how I like them! Get the feet right, find the handholds and it's not too hard. Even so, it's fairly sustained and has plenty of good moves.

fantastic route, well deserving of 3 stars IMO. sustained and varied climbing all the way. left a 1.0 cam about halfway up in a thin break. if anybody manages to retrieve this and is feeling in a generous mood please contact me to organise its return!
