[Up the Junction on The Bower at the Cuttings Portland, 4 kb]A very good climb with a series of excellent moves in its middle section. Start up Voices in the Bower. The small, detached-looking hold proves to be solid. © ROCKFAX

Came straight down off Round the Bend and onsighted this so I guess my fitness is getting better. Really nice route, much more sustained than Round The Bend.

the large right hand hold at the break was loose on my ascent, and came off during a subsequent ascent. The remaining hold is probably just as good.
