βeta: The crux is tricky - I found it hard for F6c but possibly I'm just rubbish at slabby boulder-problems; the rest is straightforward. The lower-off (shared with Choc Speedway) is further left and slightly lower than shown on the topo - it seems a bit unlikely when you get there.

βeta: ...well, except this one - a nice route on solid flowstone.

dojmaestro 9 Jun TR dnf Great to get up some tough moves, but the central crux was beyond me even on top rope, two very fine shallow crimpy pockets. Final pull over the roof was v hard too, and would be a big swing on top rope if you got it wrong

julesmckim 15 Mar, 2018 Lead RP Dusty footholds. Great crux sequence. Clipped the bolt from the high undercut out right then stepped down and traversed ledge 3m left and entered the little groove from the left hand side. Quite a precarious move. Exciting finish!

cdpuk 30 Apr, 2016 Lead dog Crux very dirty. Wasn't sure whether to go left or right at that point. Left looked correct but right was marginally easier. Crack and roof above were excellent.
