The open groove 3m Right of Lion is very low in the grade and has some nice intricate climbing. Tackle it direct past a rest ledge on the left. Take LOTS of small wires and little else. Use holds on the Right wall to assist the exit up a shallower groove.

After watching Kevin smooth lead couldn't wait to get on. Hidden gem.

Techy and reachy with plenty of gear. Crux felt 5c. Probably soft for the tall but felt fair at E2 to me.

Seconded last year but couldn't remember any of the moves, other than that you need to bridge! Took a while to get off the ground but steady after that. Good route.

Really nice route.

Really good route: great line, interesting moves and surprisingly well protected if you take enough small wires. Recommend giving it a brush before leading though.

Got stuck on crux fairly low down, hold on left broke off in my hand! Need to come back for another try. Neale made it look easy. Needs more traffic.

Nice, a couple more holds fell off and the start is a bramble-whack!

Much better and much easier than it looks, nice sustained groove with a cool finish. Easy for grade but just about worth E2 as pretty technical. Two stars.

Holds are a bit snappy, and probably more stuff waiting to come off.

Needed a bit of bushwhacking at the start, and had to clean the mud out of the top crack with my nutkey to get gear. But the climbing itself is really fun and flowing. Just needs more traffic.

Nice technical bridging route, more traffic would sort out the loose rock at top.
