First tried it 3 years ago, came back a few times since, but always fell off.

Got my hand on the horizontal crack next to the peg at the top, but as I shifted my foot i came off! The change of weight and crack direction near the top is the most complicated part. Retrieving the gear meant a short Trad climb up the right side and an abseil of the tat round a small tree.

Ignore the pegs - well rusted through, but you can place plenty good gear just before the crux. Short but sweet

Second climb of the year. A bit stiff for me. I think I could second it after a bit of practice.

Pre Placed gear. Quality route should perhaps lead it without pre placed gear next time and prob back up the peg...

Awesome climb. Stuff a good cam in before the crux and then just gun for the top. You don't need to clip either of the pegs, I think they are just there for decoration, there is a good wire above the 2nd peg aswell if you get the fear.
