On the level just above looning the tube...Climbs the groove to the right hand side of the large roof, 5 bolts lead the way to a lower off on the large flake above the roof.

Will led first. Then me on his gear, then Paul. A worthwhile route. Pretty steady for the grade. The loose spike near the bottom has fallen out, but BEWARE, there is a loose block under the roof which would really spoil your belayers day if you dislodged it, so be careful!

Hard start! Managed to get my feet high up under the roof so grabbing the jug above did not seem that bad. Great moves up and over onto the arete. Watch out for the loose spike near the bottom

The tall will be able to reach the flat topped hold beneath the roof, the rest of us just have to climb up the arete. Highly technical bridging for the first few metres.

I'm 6ft and I could only just reach the essential jug, which I only found because there seemed no other way to do the move which implied there must be something hidden up there. Technical start, tough moves past the roof.

Had to work the bottom couple of moves to actually get onto the rock face. But once done was good fun. Worth a star. Challenging all the way through, each trickier move often followed by a slightly easier one before becoming trickier again. Enjoy!
