[quick.... its dry..., 3 kb]Decent soft touch on the far L of the crag, following a clean black wall between the severe chimney and the drainage streak. The start is a little bold.

Really good. Found it a bit reachy especially the crux but never desperate and it eases off right after the crux (2 low wires). Good positive hols in the upper crack - there is also a jammed wire.

Found this very easy for E1, have done harder VS's plus the gear is there where you need it. Really good moves and a cracking route up a natural line.

This route is very good. Well worth doing when it's dry. You will need some small cams to protect the crux, I used a green and blue Alien in the bottom wall. Don't think friends would fit. It's not too hard but you are way above the gear on the crux. Lovely rock..... Just do it...
PaulTanton - Lead O/S - 27/May/12 with Anita Grey

Great climbing. I had beta by virtue of the fact that I abseiled down the route with a brush 'borrowed' fron Ynys Ettws (in order to sweep off the perceived detritus on the wall). One hardish move at approx 8m. Curious but effective (though untested) pro below that crux. Abbed off 'in situ' slings and maillon at the tree. The route is 28m not 48m as described in some guidebooks.

Only E1 as the start is bold... It has odd gear with nice 5a face climbing

Surprised that this doesn't appear in any other logs - it seemed popular the day we were there. A good route, if a bit more HVS than E1.
