Quite strenuous, & very polished in lower section. Plenty of ledges to rest/recover breath. Final wide crack not terribly friendly, but cheeky left hand sidepulls on neighbouring crack very helpful

Roped solo . Pumpy but some really nice holds if you look for them. Good moves.

First time actually getting to the top (last attempt rained off). Very polished, even in the jamming cracks! Good climbing, loads of big nuts and hexes.

Wandered left at top. Missed steep top crack. Felt easy HVS cheating this way

Top was wet/muddy so escaped left

Climbed the first half up the cracks then continued just left of the cracks, which isn't part of the route according to the guidebook ...

I thought that was quite a tough route for HVS certainly harder than double scotch. well worth doing route and cleaner than it looks, and bonus it was dry in the rain!

Banked left to end rather than progressed up the central crack. The traverse across the front made a pleasant finish, albeit onto wet grass.
