Not the only route we tried today but the only one we got to the top of, because eerything was damp and off-putting.

Ridiculously hard given the grade. Could find no good holds near the top so made some strenuous rock-over with a low two-finger pocket.

Oujmik 04/Jul/16 Lead

Finally, a route at the cuttings which is clean and unpolished! Grade calibration still seems to be way off other venues though as this isn't the gentle stroll a 2+ might suggest.

Not much fun or particularly worthwhile. Very short with no good resting place at top making tying in uncomfortable.
