A decent line. Crux low down. Don't what the Rockfax guide is on about by saying a 'pumpy finish' The top half of the route is about Severe!

Rob led, then the rest of us had a go. So I had the benefit of watching 3 others do it first :-)
Simon Caldwell - TR β - 22/Jun/08 with Rob, Peri, and Carmen

'dogged' underestimates the extent to which I couldnt do this. 'Pack of dogs' perhaps. My difficulties on the move out of the cave were only overcome by hauling from above.

well protected with cams and well supplied with holds, very nice route.
