Our last climb of the day and this was really painful. It took me a few attempts just to make it over the first couple of overhangs to the first ledge (with plenty of use of belly and knee) and then I got the fear half way up the second half of the ascent and didn't make it as far as the final tricky move. J. took a surprise fall from the final move and we ended up having to come down having left behind a quick draw.

Couldn't make last move. Took a proper fall. Left a quickdraw up there.

Nice little route, mostly vaulting, but finishes with a tricky finish move that requires stepping-up and quite a bit of confidence.

Did fairly well on this, not too scared. The climbing was OK except for the tricky move to the chains - I wouldn't have been able to do that if I hadn't just about managed to clip the chains from a fairly strenuous position well below. Definitely a "traddy" kind of climb, lots of awkward squirming around on ledges in a corner.

Alright climb, not particularly inspiring, pulling a seemingly solid chunk of rock out wasn't much fun. Lower-off position was just plain awkward!

Straightforward until the last move, then a hard struggle to reach the lower off. A bit unsatisfactory to finish well below the top of the crag.

Had to jump for a pre-places quick draw at the chains, so not entirely clean

reaching the chain is easy, but a final move to stand up level with the chain makes it a touch harder...

lovely climb- tricky if you want to finish level with the lower off
