What a great climb! The descent at the top is a little scary though.

Great route, worth the 2 stars it gets in the Littlejohn guide. Steep, strenuous, sustained, and not as well protected as I'd have liked, I thought VS 4b.

Enjoyed this, the boulder does sound a little hollow though!

Good route, I was a little nervous about the large block you have to pull onto though as it sounds a bit hollow.

After about 3 year's of trying this I've finaly baged it.

Cloudy but dry. No wind. Paul lead and I seconded. Awkward climb but satisfying.
