Not sure if I stayed on route, kept going straight up and it got a bit runout and bold but still good climbing and straightforward moves

Solid at the grade. Steep, pumpy and the gear's a bit fiddly to place, but it's all there, if you can ignore the hollow flakes!!

Didn't fancy committing to the crux. Gear felt a little distant. Finished up neighbouring VS. Very disappointing as it climbed really nicely to this point.

Actually did have one wee fall on the rope when I went left for a crap flake about half way up, not realising there was a waay better one just a couple of inches further left! Annoyed. Nice climbing.

Should be 3 stars. Noticed the ratings, this is not e2 5c as some votes. It is a great e1 5b, good gear with a nice sequence to puzzle out. There is a variation finish on sloppier holds to the right which gets e2 5c.

Awsome route, but don't trust the guide book description. I followed it to litraly and took a nice fall, got it fine second go.
