A varied and interesting route up the leftward-leaning groove. Keep an eye on the footholds or things can quickly feel a lot harder. © Rockfax

First route, intended as a warm up, but mistook this for a 5+ route.

Really should have onsighted this, fell at the top when a bit of handhold crumbled after I went for the wrong hold. Fell and swung into the rock and took a chunk out of my leg. Felt really solid on the second attempt.

Absolutely shattered after numerous attempts on 'Double or Quits' so had nothing in the tank for this one. But fun moves and one to do clean on a day with fresh arms!

Crux felt harder than Mr Choo Choo but could be condition dependant. Great route.

Have worked out a new sequence for crux section. Was then too tired to pull it off clean. Should go next time.

Flashed on TR, TRed again, went for the lead and had to rest on the crux. Had another go, slipped off and was too pumped to get back on again.

Could do all the moves except the really difficult one past the 3rd bolt which I didn't manage perfectly. Hard work and beyond my level at the moment! Still, got to the top with some rests!
