One of the best single pitch routes ive done, Pretty sure i traversed too low and there was defo a 5c move, if the other people traversed at my height and are saying its soft then they are sandbagging !!!

Amazing. Easy climbing but bold on the head wall and in an outrageous position. Bottom end E2.

Absolutely brilliant route, the traverse across the lip of the cave is awesome and exposed. A long pitch which is worth low E2.

Even keeping close to the roof in its entirety is easy. Hard to find a 5b move! But superb anyway.

4 stars. If you only do one route at sheigra, do this! The memory of balancing through the delicate crux on the lip of an enormous roof with the sea roaring, the runners receeding, the lightening flashing, the thunder crashing.... Not to be missed! E2 5c**** imho.
