Great! Didn't feel too bad. Bold in places (a bit) and technical in other places, but nice rests and lots of time to think.

Good route, albeit a bit low in the grade. Enjoyable technical climbing. Gear's fine as long as you take a fair few small and medium cams.

A good end to a good day. Nicely technical. Not as easy as it looks from the ground.

Lived up to its billing as a 'solitary gem' - had it to ourselves on a sunny Bank Holiday Monday. Excellent crux move near top - though calves were complaining from all the standing around on small edges till I finally worked it out! Well worth the walk.

Did the technically hard starting move OK, then suffered a severe lack of commitment and came down. was really, really annoyed with myself. Let the grade affect my head.
