Pleasant climb. The last section, the crux, is pretty tough.

Felt some rain and didn't want to abandon any gear, so pulled on a draw to get through the crux then climbed on to the top. Otherwise a really nice route!

Hardest part of this route is getting the last quickdraw in as it's half-way through the 6b crux! (unless you're over 6ft). And that jug is MASSIVE!

Couldn't quite reach the jug in the middle section so may have slightly pulled on the rope to reach it. Will get it next time :) Lovely climb though!
