This is a superb pitch. Just enough to keep you on your toes. A Grade 5 it is not. The moves feel so much harder than a 5 should be but non the less it is a great climb. The final moves on a dodgy sidepull and a tiny crimp and very exposed and the thank god jug just wraps it up!

Erin's lead. Really enjoyed but would never lead. Most is a nice F5 but the top is really hard for the grade especially if you're short. I had to use a bad crimp and side pull in the wrong direction to get to the better crimp most people could reach.

The top is tough at the grade. The last bolt is just out of reach from a comfortable ledge meaning a clip from an awkward position. Do clip it though as my mate decided to push through and came off in a rather large way.

Started to lead this until a huge section of the rock came off in my hand at the bottom. I then top roped it, but was vary wary of the holds and rock on this route. Some of the important holds at the top have cracks around them, and look like they'll come off eventually.
