Slipped off because I was rushing - getting midged to death. Shit happens.

After seeing how much of the quarry has fallen down since I last came I played it a bit safer and abbed down to check some of the placements. 26 years of waiting to do this route and it didn't disappoint.. SO close to coming off!

One of the great grit routes, so much good climbing on it...

Excellent and quite sustained. Went up and down several times at the crux, and made some very strange noises when I finally committed.

Sustained but never pumpy, exposed but never scary, hard all the way but never desperate. Brilliant.

Awesome route. Seemed easy for E2 5c but good signal that my climbing is going well for so early in season. Very classy must do line!
