UKC Logbook Description
The bolted line into the niche above the roof and starting up Diagonal Direct gives a brilliant climb. Above the niche a testing wall leads to the bolt lower-off by a fallen tree. The starting groove of the next route provides an alternative start.

Mystery route, hard move into the triangular niche would have been enough to have given it the 7a grade but the head wall above was brick. It would be possible to deviate right into the next route but following the bolts directly is savage. Felt like solid 7b to me. Standing traffic was easy by comparison.

Seemed well hard. Paul put the clips in for me lowering off from the end of the traverse. Gave it a good go but couldn't even do the moves dogging it. Two and three finger pockets and a sharp flake. Not a question of stamina, just couldn't pull through those fierce moves on sharp small holds.
