Sophie started the lead but wasn't happy with the layback so came back down. I completed then brought both her and James up on top-rope. They both had a go at removing the stuck cam but failed. Easy descent down the gully off to the left of the crag.

First climbed as part of my SPA training. You can climb the crux of this route on jams making it a fair amount easier, but either way it's no push over at the grade. I agree this route is a two star classic, would probably get 3 stars on grit!
