start was green, covered in bird poo and very awkward, some nice moves up the layback above but not 2 stars

Really good route! The top crack goes more easily than it would appear. It deserves a lot more traffic.

Really nice route, VS 5a in newer book, not too tough although start is well awkward and layback is a bit goey. Easier and better climbing than Central Climb.
