Reading other peoples descriptions you would think this route was a VS???!!!! It is graded correctly. Nice moves at the bottom lead to nice hand jamming crack. Lower moves not for the faint hearted although protection is there.....

Green and slimy in places at the bottom but most useful holds OK so worrying but rather than actually harder. However some very slimy bits at the top actually made a difference. Good gear. Did not seem much easier than Tind although Tind was less slippy.

Jim Slater - Lead O/S - 12/May/12 with Graeme

Great climb, probably only HVS though, Led after Jim who stripped the line after his lead.
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 12/May/12 with Jim

Not as easy as others comments led me to expect. Thought lower half quite technical.

stonking route, crux didnt feel that hard, and even managed to avoid jamming the crack, laybacked it facing left.
