Tried on O/S Lead tho unsure of exact route? Felt to be going and trending right to high up Face Climb 1. So rigged a Toperope up and did it clean.

Excellent little route, exactly my type of climb, just a pity it wasn't a bit longer. Good holds all the way, you've just got to look (and feel) for them.

Balncey but positive hand holds. One or two foot holds less positive, but friction great. Would have felt like quite a bold solo.

Fell off half way up due to balance issues, tried again and it was fine.

I could not find any protection on this climb, and so didn't want to do the final couple of metres.

Nice moves, but definitely only felt like 4b. If it was 4c then surely it'd be worth HVS, given there's no gear and the landing is rubbish?

Gearless with good crimpy 4c moves. It's short but for me it's HVS. And good.

This felt a bit worrying... found it hard to spot the holds. If your happy on crimps you'll love this
