It wasn't obvious which way exactly to go. Some climbing up and down was needed, and I used a couple of dirty holds (probably not the right ones). In that sense it was an old-school E3 experience! With chalked-up holds it would have been a lot easier.

great route but not a natural enough line to be worthy of 4 stars.

Brilliant route. Tricky wee crux sequence on smooth wee holds, positive for the feet though. Good lead from the Chadster!

Really enjoyed this one, lovely climbing all the way that leaves the fingery crux till very high up, it's all there but takes some working out! As Sophie says it's all in the feet.... ****

Really didnt want to fall off this one, and nearly didnt if it werent for the small rounded crimpy holds at the top. Excellent climbing :)
