Nice route, steady all the way, with a couple of good moves to the chains

My last climb of the day, was getting pretty pumped at the top and wandered too far right on the big ledges, ended up taking a fall. Took a rest on the rope post fall before retrying and managed to get the top with some beta from my belayer.

Fine once you find the pocket at the top! Try to avoid the temptation of slinking off right in search of jugs near the top, it makes for a fairly tough traverse on polished holds (although at least they're big ledges)

with Robin G
Matt Smith 26/Oct/17 Lead O/S

Cool route. Got drawn rightwards at the top in search of a rest which made it very difficult to get back on route afterwards. Only found hidden jug after clipping chains.

Lovely Sustained route, but went right at the top, tricky moves left with a wobble that led me to tap a draw (didn't weight it) so Not 100% happy to call an onsight but I will anyway.

A great climb. Long enough to feel like an achievement but not too long that it becomes pumpy. There are definitely bolts where you need them, so none of the moves feel too exposed. Also, there places where you can shake out your arms before harder moves. (The final hold is literally big enough to put your arm in up to your elbows!!)

Make sure you go left to the last bolt - right looks easier but you'll regret it. Quite polished but loads of big holds.
