Fun. Saw what looked like crampon/axe scratch marks on this route. Bloody hell! I thought that only happened at Millstone...... ;)

Went for a solo and lost my nerve at the crux so i down climbed to the bottom, would be a bold solo without some beta on the crux. On the other hand it is a great lead.

TR'ed 27th March 2012, lead 23rd April '12. Nice moves up the groove, well protected.

Got as far as the overhang and bottled it as I wasn't sure what was beyond the overhang for my hands - gutted as when I eventually went up (after Dougie completed the climb on my gear) there was a massive flake. Must grow a bigger set of kahunas!

is this the one with the layback? I think I did it ...
KeithAlexander - 2009 with Graeme Diack

What a great route, very short and overhung then an easy solo of top but plenty of gear if you want it. Climb highlt protectable with large nuts and cams 1-3 size.
