Good simple climb. If yur not up for a solo gear is good in the form of 1 good small nut and wee brassy beauty to get the crux done. After which its so easy it dont matter but still 2 good cams and a sling. Getting down is a wee problem, i suggest wrapping the knife eddge at top with cordletter or big slings for an anchor and then down climb. Let the second clean it then down climb. To retreive the slings etc just throw one end of rope over the wall and tie big ass not in the other - simple pull from other side.
