Found this stiff for the grade. Powerful climbing up to the break. Polished crack was a bit desperate. Had a couple of takes to work the sequence. An easy exit.

Great route, tricky to 1st ledge,, then a nice battle with finger jams. Some pigeons appear to be raising a family in the ivy halfway up to the right, so perhaps avoid doing this till end of July, or keep the noise down/ be discreet. It's their home.

Really good climb, worth its 2 stars. Just don't get confused with the other bolt on the lower wall which i think belongs to the project route alongside, as this directs you up rather than traverse diagonal left which is the sequence for this. Flake is positive all the way.

Messed up the start but then did it clean easily on finding a bit of beta. Spoiler warning - go for the diagonal hold with your right hand which makes it easy to reach the hori break with your left.

Tried it a few years ago on my first ever outdoor lead climbing trip. I stood inside the rope and then fell ending up horizontal with nasty bruises and rope burns. It ingrained a fear of falling in me. I top roped it recently then got the courage to lead it.

Reaver2k 07/Apr/09 Lead O/S

Brill route. As with many of the routes on this crag it seems, the first few moves are the hardest ones, then the rest is just a case of holding off the pump. There was one clip where the bolter had put it 6 inches too high for no reason! Had to clip it mid-move and move back down to the rest. Not as hard as some other 6a+'s here abouts. Nice moves though, flowing.
