Good line, good moves, well protected but can see why it gets E2. 2* seems fair, could see it being wet and grotty when out of nick.

Didn't realise I had done this before. Wet with a lot of run-off, made a lot of the holds and placements tricky but good fun all the same

Dusty, a bit grotty, a bold start, and some very polished holds. Not the classic its cracked up to be!

Not a 3 star route in any way!

Don't really know why this is a 3 star route it's not really very good climbing. Well protected and there aren't really any hard moves it just gets really pumpy near the top!

After Chris walked up it... may have had a tightish rope.

jkarran 02/May/11 Lead

Got my ass handed to me by this. Just enough big holds to hang about for absolutely bloody ages getting pumped, scared and generally making a total dogs dinner of things. Was followed by pathetic shaking, a migraine and a nap.

Chuffed to get this clean and with a minimum of fuss. Well protected, sustained and quite pumpy. Really enjoyable and very clean/dry even after it pissed down with rain last night.
