In the mist, bit of a run around to find the base of the route before we realised we were 100m too low. Found it, and in pretty damp conditions which made it a bit more spicy than usual i imagine. I got the duty of leading the window corner (which i couldn't get up) Wet walls and dripping holds, definitely harder than V-Diff. Had to bypass on the right hand side. A great route that i'll be back to do in the dry !

In the 2011 SMC guide this route is given V Diff. An experienced Ladies SMC /FRCC member said she thought the move to start the window crack was hard severe. I tend to agree.
