Exhilarating climbing on an intimidating line that is far easier than its appearance would suggest. Low in the grade. Start below an overhanging right-slanting flake-crack, 5m right of the descent ramp.Pull directly up the overhanging wall using the flake-crack to an easing in angle. Traverse right above the flake-crack to gain the base of the much friendlier upper wall. Above is a very thin crack, move left past this and climb the blank looking wall on excellent pockets to the top. © Rockfax

Technically 4c. Nice route. Bottom wall/overlap a jug fest but with limited pro, hence HVS. Slab above is straight forward.

Great climb. Like the climbs next to it, harder bit at the beginning

Chris really wanted to do this and it was excellent. Looks intimidating buts its a soft touch

Oops! Lead this by mistake thinking it was Silent Movie. No way would I have taken it on if I thought it was HVS 5a, and thinking it was VS 4b all the way up was a great psychological boost! Although, I must say it's over-graded in my opinion.
Thought it was a bit tough for VS, oh that's cause we're on the wrong route! Great lead Matt!

Excellent, the start is a bit intimidating but very juggy and the slab is nice and delicate with good holds. This crag has some atmosphere too!
