Horrible climb, took my first fall onto trad gear. Also took a fall onto trad gear that popped. Got about 10ft up and decided to bail

Tried to make it too difficult without bridging, but once done on a lead was easy without bridging to second

Nice steady climb. Partner managed to get some good protection in the bottom half of the route but not so much near the top.

davidbird63 13/May/12 Lead O/S

I'm glad others found it hard! It's not hard, it's just hard to protect - but only my 4th ever lead, so maybe I'm just not looking!

Chris led the route in the dry, but whilst he set up the sky quite literally opened up making this route very green and slippery. I got about 1/3 up before descending and finding someone else to rescue my gear. Fairly convinced I should've been able to get up this in the wet on a TR though.

@ChrisBeloe 14/May/11 Lead O/S

High in the grade unless you really look for the hidden pockets at the back of the crack. Loose mud and grass fill the crack with sizable loose rocks towards the top.

Bit overgrown, and took a while to realise the crack wasn't all to be used.
