Had epic faffing, pump out moments placing the draw below the roof at the top, whilst grip was slowly loosening in the break, but just managed to hang in there and make the clip - it shouldn't be that hard!

Balancy on the lower section. Crux move is quite obvious but a bit go-ey. Great value though :D

Various excuses: Not feeling all that great (turned out I was coming down with a bug); and the wind, mist, and impending weather made me too reluctant to try the barndoor-y move up to the last clip below the anchors. :-/

My first try at sport climbing. Great fun, loved every minute of it.

Great views right on the edge of a large arete. Start easy and not vertical. After ledge gets harder and a bit fluttery. Great finish round the right hand side of a roof with a great jug just around the corner of the arete.

Tricky crux for shortarses. Those under 5'2" will even find the left hand short-person variation a stretch. Great route though.
