Great route, sustained pumpy climbing with some technical moves thrown in as well. Really enjoyable, far more so than groping for jugs

Bit of an undercling move low down, but it's no big deal, and I wouldn't have thought it merited special mention. We were both waiting for it to arrive higher up! Very nice route nonetheless.

Failed my lead as I couldn't do the move between first and second bolt. Had a couple of go's but ended up getting pumped and came down disheartened. Birdy went up next and flew past the move I struggled with but lots his arms just before the last bolt. I had another go on the same rope and managed the first tricky move and then cleaned it to the top! Need to have another go and get it first time! What an excellent route. So much better that groping for jugs...

Should have got this first go. Brilliant route, the best route I've done on Sandstone so far.

Possibly one of the best routes i've come across in south wales. very interesting moves, with perfectly placed side pulls and rails.
