SeriousStu 27 Jul Sent dnf Didn't get to attempt this proper - just had a quick faff around to as far as the first clip... which turns out was really simple as I was trying an tough move starting from the crack on the left-hand-side. Hopefully I come back to this another day.

JackM92 25 Feb, 2018 Lead O/S Grade depends a lot on how close you stick to the bolts...avoiding the easy groove on the left entirely is pretty techy. Upper groove is great fun, palming, drop knees and bridging. Good route.
