Pumpy but never too hard (5b where??). And not as sustained as expected - there are definitely at least two decent rests on the route. And it swallows gear.

Well this was an interesting evening. Old jackie boy set off to beat this route he started well! HE place what he thought was a good cam placement and proceeded to have a 4m run out at which point he fell, ripping out the friend and fall 30ft into a large muddy puddle, breaking his wrist in 3 places. what a WALLY LOL
