Bloody hard unprotected start. On the HVS/E1 boundary for sure.

Fell off at the crux when I bottled the move! Stupid

spidermonkey09 22/Sep/13 Lead RP

Nails start that I blew first time. Necky barn-doory move onto slab. Felt good value for 5c given lack of climbing recently.

Got a bit pumped putting gear in, mid 5c. Lovely route! Top roped it about 4 years ago so can't call it onsight although i can't say i remember much.

Difficult bouldery start and a little bold. Lovely technical moves and strenuous until you're out on the slab.

with Chris, Pete
UnkArl 21/Jul/12 Lead O/S

Hard boulder-problem start then eases after that with a balancey move on the slab higher up. The start gave me major disco-leg. The first piece of gear is quite a way up and after the crux - could be E1

doing just the 5C bottom bit and traversing leftwards onto the buttress makes for a nice little problem
