Overgraded. No 5b move and perfect protection. This is NOT the same grade as Suicide Wall!!
Ian Jones - Lead rpt - 03/May/11 with Serge Gomez

A powerfull move at bottom flake, loose rock at top. A mild E1!

climbed past the crux, placed a cam in the thin crack line. Was holden on to a crimp while placeing gear about(6-9m) fell off landed on the flat slab. No injures!

Dr Toph - Solo rpt - 24/Oct/10

Cool route, despite loose blocks at the top. I think Promontory Direct at Auchinstarry is harder so I would give this HVS.

The big juggy block at the start (crux) looks quite attached but sounds hollow, I didnt like having to crank on it. take care on this one folks.

Nice climb though soft for E1 if you compare it to Dumby grades...

Felt a bit soft to me. 1 move very well protected and its plain sailing after that. Strated going off too far to the right at the top so Mal shouted to go left so route really with beta.
