Committing and bold with a set of microwires, death on a stick without. Very out of character for Northumberland due to the slabby nature of the route but absolutely awesome. Really juggy flake on the top section, you just need to look for it! If clean this route would absolutely be worth 3 stars, at the minute it still is!

Lovely delicate technical climbing - the holds and moves are all there, but they take a bit of working out. Took a brush and cleaned the holds I wanted as I went. Gear's a bit thin, a large chunk near the top would be relying on getting a microcam to fit, not sure I'd be bold enough to lead it.

Spoiler alert: take small cams and wires. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone owing me money.

If it was possible to sue guide-book writers this route would be a good reason to sue Rockfax for including this chossy route in a selective guide book as an HVS 5a, and with no warnings on the non existent gear. E2 5b is more like it.

Dirty and bold. A pant filling route. Would hit the deck coming off anywhere in top third.

A second vote for run out. Lead but may as well have soloed, not one i'd like to repeat.

Very run out and serious especially since the top slab is covered in moss.
