Bit dirty and unbalanced route but still good flutey fun like most of the crag.

nice climb - good gear where it matters. Never VS 4b. this grade reflects either pumpy sustained climbing or run out. Neither of which apply. Didn't find anything on the start harder than S/HS 4a/4b border so maybe a flake has grown ;)

NOt sure if some holds have fallen off the bottom of this climb but its start is nails for a 4c

with david cowley
David Cowley 24/Feb/14 2nd O/S

due to a snapped missing hold at the foot of the climb reckon the start of this warrants 4c. Cracking end to the route on the final wall

My Hardest lead so far. I have to say it was pretty smooth (which surprised me) and a lovely climb.
