Set upon by rain thunder and lightening as I arrived at the last bolt before the chains, had a 5 second rest while I thought I was coming down but my partner had put a draw in the chains, so finished the last sequence on slippy rock!

Polished to oblivion. Probably a lovely route in the past. Beware of the lower-off. V rusty and the lower mallion holding two snap-gates was undone when i reached it. Probably best avoided.

Thought this was only 6a. Took the wrong shoes up, so couldn't do the move at mid height on the tiny ledge and crimpy holds.
