I presume it should be direct finish, not direct start?

Ascending slab to the left instead of the right ramp makes for a more exciting finish.

Have previously climbed the non-direct route which was my first ever outdoor climb. Direct version is harder as very balancy and polished holds. However, getting off the ground is the hardest part after that it's just about keeping your head as little gear placement - only placed one wire.

Lovley climb to top rope start offers good challenge slippy and not so many foot holds but just take your time and you ll be fine. All of group managed this climb.

(I thought the route was direct anyway?) Awkward move to begin with and no gear for some time. Nice and balancy. Helen did not enjoy.

Found this very hard to get off ground in 1999 and 2000 evean as second. Gave up trying it on a lead in 2009, thoguh Rachel and Roland did it pretty well.
