10m. An enticing tapering thin flake above the bulge beckons. Approach it steeply, use it gently then finish on rounded holds. © ROCKFAX

Nice route. There is gear but crux is very close to ground so used bouldering mat instead.

What a cracking climb! Starts off fun and reassuring, then a bold, head-game move up and over the (not dramatically) wobbly flake and the route's in the bag. Get to the top and fight the urge to repeat there and then!

Climbed without placing gears the same as Duncan. Eases considerably once you're standing on the flake.

The flake felt unpleasantly hollow. Nice moves, but not a climb I'd care to repeat.

Wish I'd brought some gear up - there was a beautiful sling thread near the top! Technically very easy, presume the HVS is just for the lack of protection on the crux.
jonny taylor - Solo O/S - 29/Jun/08

Nice varied climb, powerful roof into delicate slab - more like VS?
