Led ground up. Unfortunately it had rained the night before, so no chalk at the top to give me an idea. The bottom climbs really well. Ended up under the roof on jugs, trying to work out what to do. Finally found a series of crimps, but was so pumped, ended up throwing for the top and having a monster fall, which was fun. Second attempt, got onto the crimps, pulled hard and just managed to latch the top. Very harrowing. This is a quality route. It climbs really well and the moves above the roof are ace. Deserves at least 2 stars. If this was at Stanage it'd get 3.

Clean 1st attempt today after top ropeing last Feb. The thin crack to start is really tough, unless you use the holds associated with the HS on the right.
