βeta: Agree about the thought of landing on the ledge. Thought is to be possibly a 4b move to reach the finish. Easy but not unpleasant start finished with a good bit of exposed finishing.

βeta: Awkward start (if you're short), rubbish middle bit, scary top (2 stars) protected by a friend that probably ought to hold. Are you supposed to go up the centre of the wall or the right near the arete?

alex_richmond98 17 Jul, 2017 Lead O/S Green and wet start - felt more like a good scramble for the first few meters. Upper section considerably harder and lacking any major protection. Threaded a 240 sling around a large chockstone to the left. Moves very pinchy and footwork important. Glad I didn't fall.

AndyPagett 26 May, 2014 2nd O/S After much investigation within the undergrowth, two pleasing jug holds arelocated, enabling a graunchy and exciting pull on to the start of this fine adventure. Completing the rockover with a large heather plant caressing ones face adds to the excitement and makes the arrival at 'heather gully' all the more welcome. Here, easy climbing give plenty opportunity to observe the many species of plant and animal life residing within the route. At this time of year many different caterpillars adorn the foliage meaning that one is never short of something to take ones mind of the frankly dreadful climbing at this point. After 12 metres a rock climb appears as if from nowhere, and the foliage parts to give way to a somewhat elevated boulder problem. Delightful and balancy climbing leads to the top of the route, but sadly it is all over too soon and leaves one wishing that the whole route had been like that. 3 stars. Classic.
