Rockfax Description
A trick start leads to easier climbing higher up. The spaced bolts make it feel exciting - it might be better viewed as an E3. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
4 bolts to a lower off, hard technical moves low down...originally given E3 6b has since been retro bolted.

alexkitts 17 Feb, 2018 Lead rpt Real hard route! Harder than I remember.. Some crazy wide-legged bridging on tiny footholds - only really hard up to the first few bolts, gets much easier after that

griff5800 13 Aug, 2017 Lead dog Crux at the very start, eases off after the first 5-6m. Rested after clipping the second bolt and wrestling with the crux then cruised the rest. Recommend taking bouldering mats for the start.

Mihkel 8 Oct, 2016 Lead O/S Pleased to get this o/s, as the first 3-4 metres felt hard - the kind of bouldery moves that required lots of small movements to make progress. Brilliant, but over after the first couple clips.

Rob Davies 8 Jul, 2016 TR Harold found way on R - wide bridging and huge reaches! - but I used mainly L side of groove with +ve hold under overlap and L edge for layaway.
