One of the best here, a tricky start leads to a fine finish up the open scoop - good footwork helps. © Rockfax

Well psyched to on-sight this. A tough start leads to sustained climbing throughout. Even to the very last move it feels precarious and very droppable. Brilliant route though.

Awesome!!! Hard, sustained and serious feeling, if actually completely safe. Not got enough experience at the grade to comment on its relative difficulty but I was definitely glad the crux was at the bottom as I barely had enough juice left to do the easy(ish) moves to the lower off.

Not being much of a fan of Horseshoe this climb was a very pleasant surprise. Continuously technical climbing is thankfully broken up with good rests. A very good route.
