Hold in corner felt to insecure to trust, will likely break soon..

Dubious gear for the crux makes this quite spicy for the grade.

Fantastic moves to get out from under the overhang, and then the holds just keep coming.

Wasn't too convinced about the gear before reaching out from the roof - had a no.1 nut in a hollow sounding lump in the back and a micro cam on the edge. Brilliant romp up once you swing out there though.

did the hour walk in to end up only doing this one route as weather was awful by the time we reached the crag (was lovely and sunny on the way in!)

Boiling on approach, freezing on belay. Don't wear shorts to Kinder.
