I was about to slag this route off but reading the other comments I'm guessing I just climbed it really poorly. The route played with my head and I couldn't suss out a way over the roof to the hidden jug without pulling on the qd. A bit of me hopes that a hold has come off as that would explain my pathetic effort but I'm guessing it was just poor route reading and technique.

Lovely technical climbing. Good foot work a must.

Lovely fingery lay backs but didn't commit enough for the roof moves. Managed it clean second go after a good rest below the roof.

A couple of nice moves at the top! watch out for rock shrimps climbing your arms in the crack at the start, not appreciated whilst clipping!!

Had fun on this one, bit shaky going up for the nice jugs under the roof but a huge sigh of relief when you do!
