An excellent slab climb up a delightful and subtle line. The climbing is continuously good but the route can get sand washed down from above and may need a brush. Worth 3 stars if perfectly clean. Climb the lower groove to tricky moves right to a good rest, then the thin flake above past another crux to a useful lower-off. Take small nuts and large cams!

(Was temporarily retro-bolted and ascents between May and August 2013 refer to that state.)

Really good climbing, the feet just keep appearing! Three stars for sure

A great line but a bit dirty. Took a brush and a nut key on the lead.

Toph made it look so easy I had to have a go. Surprisingly OK. Not what I expected from E4, so either suited me or soft.

Lovely route, certainly one of the best in the quarry. Low in the grade, but continuously interesting. Fairly clean, but take a wee brush in your pocket.

Foot slipped just below roof, fell onto gear and sliced my finger on the flake. Update: Inspected the top half from Kamikaze...the whole flake is coated in a thick layer of dirt, gear looks suspect.

First go, draws in, thought it was a warm was NOT the French 6a, F6c seems about fair.

Got a bit confused with what was what and thought this was a f6a warm up. Nice technical climbing but a shame it was filthy from start to finish. Destined to become esoterica without bolts I think.

Got it clean on my 3rd attempt today but did struggle lol. Good route and the wet wall at the bottom forces you left which is good. Soil at the top is a shame but could be removed. Abseil the route before you climb it to brush it and wear helmets. :o) I do not know if it is an E4.

Self Belay. 4. Many cracks have earth in them. If you wanna trad climb it then I suggest having a look and brushing it, soil is eroding onto the route and going in the cracks. 6a feels a fair grade but will be back soon to try to climb it clean. Top out is clear of plants but not clear of soil.
