Nice route, excellent handholds but awful footholds.

Keep left at the break. There's a one finger pocket up to the right. This pocket pushed me off

Cracking route, really enjoyed climbing this. It's a nice slabby boulder problem with a route stacked on top! The top out is a little bit of a surprise!

Nice climbing, Pippa complained she was too short, very hollow sounding flake

Beware the flake at the very top it's loose, ok to hold but if you put a nut behind it it starts to budge.

no the flake isn't solid, but you would have to actively try to pull it off. overall a very good, much overlooked route,

I'd say the moves are graded fair but Martin only managed to get one piece of gear in at the half way point. That is not VS.

The fingery second flake has come away at the bottom, making this harder than before, but a great lead.

Nice moves to start. I swear the flake moved when I stood on it to top out - be careful out there!

Awkward topout, could feel flake creaking at top when I stood on it - wouldn't want to test gear behind said flake.

move near the bottom is a very big reach. Took a few attempts.

Proper Northumberland start means the first move is the hardest. Has some long technical moves.
