Not the classic I was expecting - rock just not very good but if you're up for that sort of thing then it's fine. Good gear though I didn't lead this so don't know how it actually feels.

Fell off when a hold snapped and sliced my finger :(

Went for a walk around day before in the wet and saw this striking crack line. Did it today and found you barely climb the crack but the moves are wicked and its well worth doing. Best HVS on slate.
