Rockfax Description
Excellent and varied groove climbing with an almost gritstone-like mid-section. Climb poor rock until above the wide chert band. Move up and then left into a corner/groove and follow it to a steep finish that is overcome by a big reach. © Rockfax

2nd try today. Brilliant climb with a heart in your mouth last move. Personal it should be a 3 star route.

Hard last move and also kicked off a hold down low, should be fine though.

Got to the top move once I had the sequence sussed. That top move... did it once (after a lot of tries) going up with the left... very powerful... maybe if i was taller... maybe. Looking at the comments I probably should have invested more time trying it with the right. One for next time.

Top move was just in my head. Did it with the left sidepull. Hard 7b.

Not got the beta and/or power for the final move. Not using sidepull out to the left. Rest is very straightforward.

The final moves to the lower off took some working out. Went through 4 different methods. Eventually found a (fairly) static way. Third try on the third day lucky. Phew.

Dogged but did all the moves apart from the last long reach.

Apparently you're su[pposed to undercut LET hand at the top... Hard IMO and uncharachteristic last move in terms of the rest of the route.
