warm up. Would agree with comments that no way this is 4+ and bolts don't inspire confidence either. but it is actually a good route.

No way is this only a 4+ climb. The first bolt is very high and quite a reachy clip for an easy route. Would grade this higher also based on the excessive wear on the holds.

Not a great climb, first bolt was really high. Enjoyable enough but not a 4+, more like 5+! With Erin, Sam, Victoria, Ollie, Alice and Jasmine.

Completely absurd place for the first bolt. Up to the first ledge was a fairly easy scramble, but I definitely did not fancy the move onto the second ledge without the bolt clipped; very high and way too far into droppable territory. (Remedied this with a borrowed clipstick.) The climbing was fairly nice all the way up, though. Managed to mangle my pinky and bled copiously onto all the holds on the upper half.

when one of our group climbed this route on 08/07/12 a large (2ftx1ft) section of rock by the 3rd bolt came loose and narrowly missed the belayer. Due to the heavy rain this section seems a bit loose at the moment so please climb with caution

Enjoyable climb, not easy to clip of the top, very sandy and wet

leeds_belle 26/Jun/12 Lead O/S

Lovely route but requires a very long cows tail to clip into lower off. Awkward to get feet higher on the last move & hand holds a bit dirty.
