An awesome route - truly enjoyable at every stage. Tough if VS is your limit, but a fun route if not.

Led P2... peg, what peg?! Traversed left from the belay but apparently not far enough before moving back right, delicate and sparse moves on a face led to a great corner.

A good route definitely worth a visit. The top pitch is a change from the jugs at the bottom. beware the large loose boulder on the belay ledge and a couple of loose blocks half way up the second pitch. A typical Ruckle experience

This is a great route, can't believe its not in the Rockfax Dorset guide. Definitely worth a visit!
ben.richards - AltLd O/S - 26/Mar/11 with Luca Celano

Ld p2. P1 straight forward and enjoyable on big holds,awesome top pitch though. Not a massive amount of gear on P2, but solid placements when needed. Top pitch nice and delicate above the peg.

Rested on rope. First pitch is a glorious doddle to a hospitable belay ledge. The upper pitch is terrific, getting thinner and thinner with worrying runners in apparently fixed flaky cracks on the right in it's lower section. Finished up right of groove up slight aerate.
