Also found the top move scary so ended up jamming the top break rightwards to top out on more positive holds.

HS Variant as in eastern grit to warm up, nice climb!

Lovely climb until last move. Spent ages faffing about on last move (direct HS finish as in Eastern Grit), did it easily and wondered what all the fuss had been about.

Finishing direct isn't nearly as hard as it looks thanks to a handy crimp. A pleasant little route.

Thought this looked really easy and set off soloing it in high winds without looking in the guidebook. Scared the hell out of myself trying to finish direct and scuttled off to the left, not realising that was the way the route actually went anyway.
