South side dry and climbable, north side a messy mess of wet and green. Ah well.

Good climbing, but very bold. Gear for the start, then nothing until it's all over. First route on grit this year, and a bit of a shock to the nervous system!

Fairly straightforward little route, once off ground which is a little more strenuous/thought provoking.

not a very nice route, and very hard to protect

minirollsrule 27/Mar/11 Lead O/S

absolutly gearless! only one bit at head height to protect the slightly over hanging start and then nothing till a big hex in a wide crack VERy near the top which is basicly pointless
