Think this is still onsight as I tried it a couple of times a few weeks ago on a really hot greasy day so down climbed both times from the poor slopers. Felt good today although still warm rock. It's solid E1 and borderline 5c for me. Great route and well worth 2 stars

Way above the level I lead at but nice to try something with challenging moves. Fine up to and after the crux. The crux took some work!

Tom led and fell off, really horrible sloper had to be used once over the lip, up to another poor hold. Would have been fine if it wasn't such a greasy day. Ohwell, good climb if a bit short!
