A fantastic route. Can't understand why I haven't done this before! It was slightly chossy in places, but not too bad and each pitch had interesting moves. I went too direct on the overhang, which resulted in a couple of short falls before finally completing it at a grade higher than 5a! ;) Ben then seconded it correctly and demonstrated how with the correct hand hold it falls into place at 5a! Great fun! :)
