Bold but really not very hard at all. Not sure where the 5b move was. The unprotected section is straightforward.

Unenjoyably difficult first move then relatively easy but unprotected traversing (definite prang potential), followed by forgettable romping. Not sure why this gets two stars.

Saw Freddie solo this a while back finally got round to doing it myself. Having tried the start before I knew that bit was a little tricky but getting established at the top of the crack I got my hand position wrong mainly due to an abundance of chalk on the rock, but I managed to correct myself and start the traverse. I rushed at one point due to the ever beating sun bearing down on the rock making the holds slippy and some deceptive chalk. But I was never in any real danger as its only high when it reaches the severe. One of the more intense soloing experiences I have had but still pretty fun. Cool route I imagine nails for anyone shorter than 6ft.

A day soloing along the edge with Mark Gray. Mark had done it before and set off up it so I followed without knowing anything about it - it was hvs then and the friction better. Soloed it a number of times since.
