A bit neglected: some nice moves, but rather dirty and with some dodgy rock near the top. The right hand of the two trees on the lip is completely rotten; I removed the large block which was precariously cradled in it.

Only top roped as gear looked sketchy

brilliant climb, would be easily two stars if it had a bit more traffic to clean up the holds on the last couple of metres. Definate HVS.

Good route that is much less travelled than it deserves to be.

Really nice route apart from the finish, apparently it goes right in the new guide but feels better to just go directly up. Definately HVS.

Apparently this is gonna be HVS in the new guide - which i think is fair - or possibly E0

Looks rubbish from below. But is a good climb, nice moves, great protection but some rotten rock on the edges.
