Found this very strenuous in parts, struggled to get up over the flake without a rest!

HVS 5a in my opinion. Cracking route.

Very sustained HVS 5a in my book. Enough gear to place before comitting to the layback which I found fairly easy and it definitely didn't feel 5b (in perfect conditions). Lovely route and well protected.

Ran quickly back up on top rope to retrieve gear from the top. Started up the little wall to the left, which was nice and scarcely any harder than the slightly awkward normal start (although probably less protectable - didn't look too closely).

Really nice route. Very well protected and never really harder than 5a.
Andrew Sloan - Lead O/S - 18/Aug/12 with Tim
Brilliant. Not as hard as I thought it would be. Laybacking section was barely 5a, although I found getting to the alcove slightly harder. It would be pretty straight forward if you powered through without placing gear during the layback.

great moves all the way, especially the layback sequence round the flake. you just have to ignore the fact that one day that flake will fall down, hopefully not with climber attached.

why did i wait so long to head up there and get this climbed. excellent route. stopping on the layback to try and place some kit would be hard work. 3 stars. not sure about 5b too
