Backed off 15ft up as a bit tired on 5th route of the day and the landing looked unpleasant for a 20ft fall before the 1st bolt.

Suspect rock just before the 2nd bolt so maybe does not deserve a star despite good moves. No independent lower off despite one being shown in the guide so finish by trending either L to the Remain in Light lower off or R to the Long Distance Runner lower off.

The best climb of the day and worth seeking out! The start is a little bold and pushy, but if you just take a deep breath an go, you'll be next to the bolt before you know it.

Bold start. Great route, good line and thoughtful delicate climbing. Pulled a big block off (deliberately) while lowering as it looked ready to chop someone's rope.

Bold up to the first bolt. Small but bomber sideways wires near the top just where they're needed.

relatively committing start and thinly protected (probably fine if you like your small gear) end add up to a great experience. very worthwhile.
