8m. Thin cracks lead to good runners in the second break. The gripping (and often sandy) exit is too far above them for comfort. © ROCKFAX

Very good although quite short. Felt bouldery. The top-out wasn't too bad.

Fell off seconding the start. Hard. Nice route

Blew the O/S having a rest after getting pumped after placing the gear. Abseiled for gear after lowering off but realised the rest probably wouldn't have been too hard. Was dark by this stage but couldn't wait so led by head torch.
Graeme Hammond - Lead rpt - 13/Sep/12 with Andy Jobling, Jim

I found this route surprisingly nice, lots of interesting holds and good moves. Sketchy top out though.

Pythonist - 27/Jun/12

Had to rest just before top move. First trad in nearly a year and placing gear destroyed me! Good route though will go back and clean it.
