Clipped toms gear on way up. Top out is still dirty, be careful not to kick things on your second.

Rested on gear a couple of times but persevered. Made a bit more tricky by sweating my bodyweight in water. VS 5a for me, the ledge of the bulge is currently covered in soil/stones and brambles etc. Oh yes and i kicked half my gear out and got my foot tangled round the rope going over the overhang! fun!?!

Couldn't get established above the bulge, put off by dirty crack higher up but mostly by my head. Lowered off on the gear this time, so have definitely blown the on-sight.

Dirty, sustained, HORRENDOUS top out. Not very much fun, not 3 stars imo!

A superb route. Very technical. Includes, laybacking, bridging, an overhang. What more could one ask for? ONE OF MY FAVOURITE CLIMBS

nick bamber - 2000

A great route with good protection all the way up. Good bridging up the crack takes you to that awkward overhang and excellent finish.
