One quite tough move that took a bit of figuring, but found it significantly harder than when I was going quite well

Much nicer than the one to the left. I rested twice on my first go and then tried it again. Amazed by how smoothly it went (having the quickdraws in already made a massive difference).

nice little route, hard enough to be of interest but no real problems. can go to the right or left of the final bolt to climb it as a 5.

Short but good climb, I went to the right at the top
Aaron Stephens - Lead - 26/Jun/10 with Rachel Lewis

Right is shimples but left is too easy and off from protected line and straight thru over bolts is worthy of a 6a+ but few would zactually climb that line in favour of obvious right hand route.
Rustyshanks - Lead O/S - 23/Jun/10 with Sam Lemkey

Lemkey - Lead - 23/Jun/10 with JC

Climbed it three times, right of the bolts, on the bolts and then left of the bolts. The latter was smoothest most fun. Jolly good climb. Worth the star I think.
