Really good route. Found it desperate on my first attempt trying to put quickdraws in too. Maybe should have got it second try but didn't have the correct sequence going through the bulge. On my 3rd go I felt really solid and went fairly easily.

Not too powerful to start with if you're good with your heels. Knee bar no hands rest before completely miss reading the top section to claw up on tick-marked footholds - completely missing the jugs! Scraped through.

The line of the crag with climbing to match. Burly pockets and tufa that succumb to heel-hookery, leading to a short but stern technical finish on crimps. So glad to get it after twice falling at the top on the last day of my previous trip.

(Ambitious) flash attempt. Got further than I expected but never got the chance to get back on it.
