Was very eliminate to not bridge into the corner of the adjacent route. Avoiding this would have made it harder than 4c, I think.

Much too artificial and way harder than the rest of the route if you avoid bridging into the crack on the left at the bulge. Nice climbing after this with a bit of a puzzler to finish. A nice VS 4 b/c done this way.

djones66 27/Jul/14 Lead O/S

Very pleasant after a fairly hard -for-VS pull just after the start. I was 'instructed'to keep out of the big cracks on the left,and did so. After the harder bit near the start, is reasonably easy all the way up (woud be a better route if a bit more 'interesting'. Excellent rock.

Bradbury 27/Jul/14 2nd rpt

Pixie-Andy 26/Jul/14 Lead O/S

If you climb the thin crack strictly without touching rock in larger crack then there are some tasty moves on this, IMO a hard VS 4c. But with the large crack being so close its hard to avoid making it an easyish VS 4c

ralphio 22/Jul/14 Lead O/S

Nice climb. Could possibly get HVS for the middle section. Probably worth more stars than it gets in the guidebook.

better if you eliminate the block on the left but it's harder than 4c if you do that.

The move at the top is hardly 'a stinker'. It's actually quite elegant once you work it out. A very pleasant route, though it's hard to avoid the route to the left near the bottom.
