Great line with 3D climbing. Would be epic if done in one pitch for the weight of rope alone. Classic.

Slightly underwhelmed with the quality. Bit thuggish on the crux. Pitch 2 very nice.

Lead in one massive pitch. Slipped while putting gear on the first crux and accidentally pulled on the gear briefly. Apart from that all clean.

Gleb did the first pitch, I did the second.
The crux is the layback in the middle of the first pitch. The roof looks intimidating but it's easy climbing with bomber gear.
Take number 5 cam if available - helpful for protecting offwidth.

Fantastic, one of the best routes I've ever done! Much bigger and better than Cenotaph Corner. The climbing is surprisingly varied - some jamming but also bridging, laybacking, udging and all sorts of weird contortions, particularly above the main overhang, then a finish with a flourish on jugs over the second overhang. Did it in one massive 55 metre pitch and placed 18 runners, deliberately running it out in places, but could have unloaded three racks into it. Didn't think there were really any 5c moves but definitely lots of technical 5b sequences and a sustained 5b layback section through the black crack a third of the way up. The entire route was dry but a bit dirty on the offwidth sections above the overhang - can't have everything! Superb, four stars.
Misha - Lead O/S - 19/Aug/13 with Ed
An awesome route. Best of the 6 three starred routes we did at Fair Head?
Annoyed I stuffed up the layback sequence on the black rock low down first time, as I got the harder sequences above ok
