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.

What a line! Had a few moments of self doubt on the overhang and nearly fell off when I fluffed the sequence on the crux.

Absolutely fantastic corner route with a delicate finish. Must return to lead it.

Incredible climbing, probably my favourite route at this grade. Has a little bit of everything, and all the rests and jugs are right where you need them.

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

Long enduro climb. Nothing particularly hard y9ou would call a crux but sustained, and slightly polished.

Gave up after slipping off wet holds at the top, great climb though.

Rob Evans ??/2011 Lead O/S

Great climb though a bit wet in places

Ollie Rattue ??/2011 -

Blew onsight after missing key hold. Finished route after that. Great climb.
