No gear bottom 2/3rds
buxtoncoffeelover - TR - 30/Sep/13

Unless you're tall enough for the jump, the start is hard - and not to be fallen off. No gear for first half of route. Isn't badly protected 4c HVS?

What as first move - used creaky flake and the stiff mantle shelf type move. Rest straight forward
gingermike1 - 2nd - 29/Jun/13

Took a while to commit to the leap for the edge over the unwelcoming pit. The top section is quite airy for an HS.
