A series of problems from V0 to V7+ and potential for a few projects on crimpy quarried grit. Top outs can seem a little worrying but are generally reasonably solid.

Steel fingers required for a lot of the crimping here.

Mixed bag of routes some good, some poor, some dirty but overall the grading seems pretty harsh!
