The best sports route of its grade in the area. Check out the old plough blade gear in the break! Climb the lower wall from the big boulder platform down and right of Plus Ca Change, heading for a prominent v-groove. Pull straight through this groove and shakeout. The next 8m is devious and continually difficult. BB over on the right.

Second attampe. Pumpy but doable with a good burn and rests at the top.

suprisingly pumpy for a warmup

Pumpy but it dishes out the good holds just when you want them! Quality climb.

The best sport climb I have done in the UK thus far, feels like a classic piece of overhanging rock you would find in somewhere like Spain.

Really liked this one, bit of a strange wander across the ledge, nice above!

Excellent, although the flash pumped scuppered the rest of the day.
