Felt steady for a Curbar E1. Shame the finger crack isn't twice as long.

Matt put some important gear in at the bottom. Scared myself at the top because the line is not obvious. Great route

seconded Ben on this last year. Climbed today in damp conditions waiting for rock to dry so felt quite tough. Good little route - nicely varied.

nice crack, dirty at the top and the highland cows were more than a little close to comfort, being tied between those horns and a 10m drop isn't the most relaxing belay in the world.

Sgrit. Nearly fluffed the start.

Not what I was expecting, the intimidating crack is actually straightforward and rewards enthusiasm but the final streeeeetch is much bigger than it looks. A really good little route.

Hard work. Had to think about footwork initially and practice and then came off at top of route trying to stretch to reach over top.

good finger locks, and more for feet than first appearances suggest make a fine but but soft (at Curbar!) E1, probably worth a 2nd star!
