Quality steep climbing. Seemed easy, but I was well warmed up and had just done Marshall Plan so hard to judge.

Lovely sunny day but still windy there, only 10 mph wind but constant and drives me nuts

Very nice climb, get some long sling though as the drag is not for giving otherwise...

I did the crux but then was so knackered I had to rest on the next bolt up. Another one I shall have to re-do

Possibly slightly harder than WOF, steep for a few moves and one stiff pull. Thought it was better than WOF, positive attitude needed.

Up and down x 3 at the crux before committing to the moves. Massive jugs, just felt steep! Then brutal rope drag when the rope wrapped around the bolt. Very satisfying route, I like this crag a lot.
