A wonderful playful route - some very nice/unique holds. Mildly strenuous & fairly steep, but great fun

Great fun

Surpringly pumpy, also surprisingly good. People whose only experience of route in the 5 grade is at climbing wall wilk get a shock on this one!

Nice warm-up route on interesting rock, although a little pumpy for a 5, certainly a 5+ at least as it is now in the guidebook.

Harder than 'Just Passing Through' with the left hand finish - good value 6a.

End of the evening but even so this seems hard for the grade.
