Difficult to get going, but once you make it to the first bolt its good climbing. There is a loose flake nearish the top that I would recommend not putting much weight on.

Fakey Rocks 05/Jul/17 Lead O/S

Bit hard at the start, worth preclipping B1 or 2. Good potential for a loose laptop sized block near top of flake to be pulled out causing serious injury, tempting to use it, but not needed.

S.Kew 05/Jul/17 Lead RP

Lower section slightly tricky if you miss a hold, like i did.

Some loose rock came off about mid way, some loose remains, care required.

The ground has dropped down too far now, worth while once you reach the first bolt.

Hard start due to the starting ground being worn. But if you look for good feet you can work up to the first ledge. It really is a crux on the first part.

Behold81 02/Apr/16 Lead RP

clean on the second attempt.

Fatclimber 20/Mar/16 Lead

Due to lanslip very hard start. Gets massively easier higher up. Very disjointed

A nice route, a little harder than A dream of white horses, with a quite balancey move between the first and second clip. The rest of the climb is fine. Again, a little bit muddy.

Don't think this climb was good to start with, but now it is covered in dried mud and best avoided.

6B to LO. Quite a steep start. A bit more balancey than "Porsche's". Easier after 2B, better move by ledge - not supposed to go onto ledge! Fumbled over ledge, but otherwise, good clean climb.
