Fine climbing, mostly HVS with one short, hard section on the first pitch.

WARNING: A large block has become loose just below the first belay. See

Ticklists: Victim Of Mathematics' Ticklist of Extreme Justice, Allan Austin Classics, Ultimate E1 ticklist.

No idea how this gets 3 stars.

Pitch 1, the ugliest I've ever climbed. Very scruffy.

joe.91 06/Sep AltLd O/S

Now uprated to E2- in the new guide, can see why. The peg beneath the crux is terrible and bent, you'd go a long way! Pitches 1 and 3

FlavioL1989 05/Sep AltLd O/S

Lead first pitch, did some of the E3, felt like climbing slate. The top is rubbish and not worth doing.

Excellent varied climb, with steep bits, slabby bits and a fun tricky rib (especially for munchkins!) to finish. Don't try doing in two pitches - it doesn't quite work! A lot of sandbaggers out there as some pretty thin moves above crap peg for HVS!
