One of the worst climbs of my life. High first bolt for no reason, but to worry you, then very very polished hand and foot-holds at start of delicate climbing. Gets better further up, which wasn't hard!

hellboundblr - Lead - 20/Oct/11 with Ian Wilkinson

slippy at the hard move above 2nd bolt, bit offputting. Once past that its sustained 6a+. 1st bolt high but easy ground up to it.

wow, great route, might have spent hours slipping off the polish at the second bolt though so trod in sling. fantastic and sustained after that. Great end to a holiday.

Very nice and quite simple, just a little tough on your calves by the top. 30m of slab! Ouch!

Excellent route but found it tough for the grade. Much grunting and even a power scream at the end.
mr_nsglover - Lead O/S - Feb/10

first bolt is high, but easy climbing to it. though would be a better route if it started direct with one more bolt on the slab at the start

Superb climb. Did not finish. Robin lead it afterwards.
timjones - Lead dnf - 28/Oct/08 with Robin Pugh

A very difficult(but great) route, due in part to the polish that even Rob lobbed off when leading. I enjoyed it but there was a tough section near the top.
