Lead this up to the bulges, could not get any further so down climbed and let my partner lead, Chris also couldn't get over the bulges, after much trying eventally gave up downclimbed and was lowered down to retrieve gear. Once lowered, Chris climbed it on top rope and found it absolutely desperate to get over the bulges. looking at voting, we must have been doing something wrong!

Lead up to the bulges but could not figure out the move from there. Not sure where this went to get VS 4c. Went straight over the bulges in the end but seemed a lot harder than the HVS next to it.

A foothold the size of a housebrick came away almost hitting my belayer in the face, which added a bit of spice! Not the best quality route around.

some really interesting massive holds, and some rather hollow sounding rock.
