Quite run out between bolts, but steady climbing. Recommend wearing a helmet in case you get drawn into the crack line as I did.

Awkward shady corner. Easy but not the nicest route.

with Fran
TJ Mather 13/Jan/13 Lead

Climbed with a headtorch. I think I may have used a bolt from the route to the left, but even with that it seemed very run-out to the lower off.

Enjoyed this. Also did most of Olive oil next to it but failed on the top move so have to resort to lowering off from top bolt of this climb.

Very long run out to the last bolt! Made this route much scarier than it would have been a a little extra protection.

Could be a wild lead for person who is leading at 4 or 5, run out at top. take some nuts or cams and it is well worth it.
