Brilliant climb
Chris1234H - 09/Jun/13 with Samjharding95

The route is bold and protection is adequate but enjoyable. Annoyingly the anchor is really far back resulting in tons of drag while you desperately claw at the 45' grass slope or a descent through a chossy grass gully if you have to abseil to retrieve gear
