UKC Logbook Description
As per comments below, the description and line on the Rockfax topo are wrong. Don't follow the groove up and left to finish.

This route is terrible. Yes the lower offs have moved as mentioned, but in comparison to what else is on offer in a few metres either side, this one let us (all) down in terms of quality.

This seems to have a tricky crux in the upper stages...elected to go out left rather than straight up the overhang...

The 3 star rating in the book is wrong. Lower off also not where indicated. Go straight up from ledge. DO NOT GO LEFT.

The line in the rockfax guide is wrong - no bolts or lower-off where they say to go left. The line we climbed was harder than f5+

Topo is wrong, continue traversing further right to mantel a ledge and then either up a face, left of the bolts, or a crack right of the bolts(easier)

Rockfax guide is wrong. The bolts trend right then back left later than it shows going above the greenery not below it. Because of this I ended up going straight up the bulge to a different lower off which was definitely harder than a 5+.

The line in Rockfax is wrong. There are two options - either continue further right then go up the big slab, which I think is where it should go and is excellent and about 5+, or, closer to what roxkfax shows, go back left earlier but then straight up steeply to a lower off. In this latter case the moves back left then up are harder than 5+ - probably english 5c then steep 5a for 2 moves after that to the lower off. I had to rest on final bolt (about 2 feet from the lower off), althoguh this was partly down to cowardice in not wnating to pull the rope through with tired arms...

Not sure what's going on with this route. Did the steep move where it starts heading back leftwards onto the ramp, but the only bolts I could then see were up and right through a steep bulge (off-route, according to the line in the guide). Finished up them, but felt a bit powerful for F5+ and I ended up resting on the final bolt.
