After psyching myself up for a tough start I didn't find it too bad - a little runout but the moves seemed steady and certainly not the crux. The groove itself is very sustained though - pumpy on the calves. A brilliant route, definitely worth 3 stars at least

I found this hard and awkward. Perhaps it was because the rock was a bit damp and greasy at times. The start is OK.

Very hard unprotected start, then easier but continually interesting (and well protected) climbing up the corner. 3* as per guidebook.

An absolute stunner of a climb. Possibly a contender for four stars? I was giggling to myself climbing this. Just as the guidebook says; climb the groove with continued interest.

Fergus Cuthill - 2nd O/S - Jun/10 with Rozzy

It started raining about a quarter of the way up. Luckily the holds are mostly pretty positive! Excellent, sustained climbing, but certainly HVS and not E1.
