Wanted to bag a couple more routes and have solo'd this before so felt confident doing so. 4a start again and then like a staircase. There is one move near the top which is a little worrying, the handhold is very polished along with the footholds. Probably all in my head. Nice beginners Mod, will be sure to bring Jill up here onto these slabs for a stab at them.

First solo ever! Easy peasy, think UKC has it wrong, rockfax says Mod which is much nearer the mark. Some interesting none strenuous moves thoughout, just what I was looking for for my first solo! Would be a nice easy lead for beginners. Did the 4a (3c?) direct start aswell.
