Tricky and quite pumpy. Good lead in the sunshine by Gav. Two stars.

Luke90 06/Jul/17 Lead O/S

In pretty decent condition but the hint of green on the wall still makes smearing more tenuous than it should be.

What a great climb. Done in one pitch. I didn't find it dirtu even though I'd spent the last 20yrs being told it was. The top section is brilliant with technical layback ing and bridging. Do it if you are at the crag.

Something of a treat - a good quality clean line at Millstone with very little wear. Climb it before it gets polished. Full marks to whoever cleaned it up. Didn't feel esey to me, but it was very hot and sweaty at the time.

Fell on the higher section with thin layback crack. Fortunately gear held and just landed on the block below as rope stretched. Thanks will for taking in. Fell because my foot popped - felt quite greasy/sweaty at that point!
