Thin cracks lead to good runners in the second break. The gritty and gripping exit is too far above them for comfort. © ROCKFAX

pulled on as boulder problem a couple of times, then led to break and put wrong size cams in (other on the Rasp). Finally had a proper go with the right size cams and it went fine. Easier to fiddle gear from above on the flake. Nice rockover and top out not that bad. Maybe I was a bit to the left. Harder than the Rasp? err, no :)

Exciting top out.

Really nice little route
Wizzy - 2nd O/S - 14/May/15

Good route, steeper than it looks! Feel it is worthy of the grade because its touch and go if you would deck from the top out (which is probably the crux). Worth doing though!

very straight forward, felt more like E1 5c.

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

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.

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

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.
