As usual with ladye bay, very hard to onsight ! But got second go. Very interesting and varied climbing, and a good no hands rest before the final crux! Definitely at least a star. The sandy grimness is all part of the struggle on the traverse. A great route and one I've had my eye on for ages!

One of the more trad like sport routes around. Overall the climbing isn't that hard if you know what you are doing and are strategic about resting but the line itself is quite intimidating and the fact that its a traverse means getting your draws back at the end isn't a total piece of cake. Kudos to Rob for going first, without his beta for the final section there is no way I would have been able to do it first go (hidden undercut vital for reaching flat hold).

Flashed apart from slipping off before the first bolt a couple of times. Bottom loose and slippy the rest nice but a bit sandy. Definitely worth doing.

Felt stiff at the top

The rest onsight, after messing about at the first bolt. Unique!
