OMG. If you're 5ft 6 or less the move from the ledge is crazy. So much fun though (on a rope!!!) Cracking route. Belay set up at the top is really tricky as the stake is in the wrong orientation, very small and quite loose and gear placements are at 180degrees!

Spicy for a VS 4b. I saw at least one party fall on this today but Ray climbed confidently through the crux despite only having climbed since spring 2012.

Had to top rope after failing to lead. The Crux seemed very tough, but perhaps we were doing something wrong!
