Rockfax Description
The front face of the monolith is a classic little pitch, well marked and well-travelled. A short-lived but excellent outing. . © Rockfax

Quite hard for a HS! Fairly exposed and quite a big spacing between gear! If you go straight up without the arete there are some balancy moves.

Lead on Leo's gear, couldn't pass up the opportunity to lead this as its not the type of crag that you go to regularly. Good (but short) route, nice exposed finish, didn't use any gear after stepping on to the arete.

Unfortunately didn't seem anything too special (still good mind), though this could have been because it is nails for HS.
