It's very "three dimensional" as I described it to my seconder! Got to look all around you to get the good holds. Nice view of the quarry too from the top :)

It's Supplementary Question with bolts, and a brilliant climb, good rock and good moves, though the top bit a little dirty. One of the better routes I've done at Horseshoe.

this is now a bolted route and felt easy - I think its on gary's site at 4+ which is about right. A little dirty, watch the rope drag
