βeta: prepare to have your skin trashed on the crux section on the first few looks. Amaizing climb, best on the wall?

βeta: Bouldery in an old school way crux low down, then the stunning upper groove. Amazing position and rock, sustained and technical, hard to read (on first aquaintence) moves. Possibly the line of the wall, with climbing to match. Last three bolts look suspect though.

βeta: Mega route. Sharp boulder problem start to a shakeout into a very sustained and technical groove to finish.

thebigfriendlymoose 3 May, 2018 Lead RP Almost lost it due to a fumbled clip at the top of the tufa; a panicked shake-out and I just made it to the chains... full-on disco legs AND arms, blood pouring from multiple fingertips onto almost every hold. The route is possibly a grade harder now due to bad voodoo!

Duncan Campbell 9 Sep, 2017 Lead RP Surprising given that I have just been on a long block of nights and felt like I was going to be sick when I arrived at the crag! Third session. Felt good on the hard move at clip two today and managed to hold it together up the awesome upper groove! A great route but it would be an amazing route if it had a nicer lower section

Duncan Campbell 19 Aug, 2017 Lead dog Had 4 goes - first go couldn't do crux but went to top - second go worked out crux then did big (but costly) link from below crux to top. 3rd and 4th goes skin was too thin and I was tired. The groove above the crux is absolutely brilliant! Got a fierce crux!

nathanlee 1 Oct, 2016 Lead RP First go up this in the sun felt like an exercise in pain tolerance.... Luckily it cooled off a bit and managed to fight up it on redders. The bottom is minging but the top is really brilliant.
