Hard, tenuous rockover to get established on the ledge (I thought worth 6a). The gear was uninspiring and I couldn't see any more but there were some ok holds going up and right so I decided to investigate. Fortunately better holds and gear soon appeared. Tricky dance across leftwards between overlaps, then a steep finish un the finishing groove which has good handholds but so-so feet. Great route and pleased to see that I can still onsight sustained pokey E3s (after hardly any hard climbing for two months with the Alps trip and hard rock ticking).

Puzzling crux, or did I go the wrong way?! Nice route apart from that!

a tough little customer! or was i just tired? inobvious line, hidden holds and a puzzling crux (spent A LONG time on that) not to mention sustainedness combined to make this feel significantly harder than the soft E3 suggested by North Wales Rock graded list. a superb pitch that packs it in. well-protected.
