βeta: A good route, worth 2 stars. Some excellent moves in the groove, and the top wall after the hands off rest is no push-over.

Hidden 26 May Lead dog
Duncan Campbell 26 May Lead RP Put the clips and then did it first RP having had a few goes last week. Figured out some better beta for the start and also felt way less knackered!

Duncan Campbell 19 May Lead dog Had a few goes up, got all the moves and done in a few sections. Find moving past the first bolt desperate around the under cut. Also passing bolt 3 is tricky. Rest is ok though the top is a little draining. Think if I get it a little more wired and am a bit fresher I’d be fine once I get through the start. Brill route that I’d always dismissed. Nice that it’s a bit quieter.

Mat Welsh 18 Jun, 2018 Lead RP 1 Day plus 5 other climbs - Every climb from the first until the tick ended at the finishing crux slap for the sloper past the third clip ! Harder crux climbing lower down and a pumpy finishing sequence. Good route !
