By eck! Getting out the groove onto the slab was tricky. Not going on my HVS to lead list.

Has a bit of a bite to it! The top of the crack is tricky and the gear is both only just adequate and hard to place. I found the slab bold, but really quite simple.

Hard exit onto the slab.

Steven Andrews - 2nd O/S - 07/Jun/10

Good footholds on the lower slit but the handholds all seem offputtingly sideways. Managed to get onto the slab above without finding the apparently mega flake hold on the right.
Babika - TR - 30/May/10 with Dusan Antosik

Took me a while to get through the crux. The slab part of the route is not too hard but scary due to an almost total lack of gear.

jl - Lead O/S - 06/Mar/10 with Mark Ollis, Penny

Backed off this in May 2005 after having only lead about 10 other routes. I still found the crux took some thinking about.

steveP - 2nd O/S - 21/Jun/09 with Simon Ringrose

I agree that the upper moves in the crack are hard and the gear is not the best... The slab, although easy, is scary because a bit dirty (and potentially wet in places) and there's really poor get in it. It's also much longer than I'd anticipated.

First HVS I know I could lead happily. Nice route.
Caralynh - 2nd O/S - 13/Aug/06 with Adam Carless

Good moves through the steep crack, but afterwards the gear is pretty poor, and the surface is rather dirty/crumbly, so feels insecure.

Hard on the initial crack and not the best gear. E1 5b? Slab easy (4b) but no gear.
