Lovely route. Shame there was a few wet slimey bits that spoilt it a bit but still really enjoyed it.

Glen Burrows 01/Feb/16 2nd dog

Probably my favourite climb of the trip, a bit of everything, some lovely drop knee bridging, mantles, pockets and a delicate section. Bits were seeping and wet from thunderstorm otherwise perfect.

The guidebook says "magnificent when dry and clean". Should have twigged that this meant it might get a bit tricky when dirty and slightly wet. :-P
