55m, 2 pitches. Start at some rust-coloured rock above the big flat boulder. Climb up directly past a poor peg (bold) to a small groove, and continue into a small niche. Either head right to the big triangular niche of Inbred to belay, or even better, move left and slightly down to another niche then more or less directly up the wall to join the final section of Inbred, giving a sustained 45m pitch.

Lovely climbing on lovely incut holds all the way. This felt a lot easier than I was expecting so I was able to enjoy the climbing and the fine positions a lot more. Great route.

Direct version. Think I got confused by the directions in Latter's guide, and veered into harder territory for a bit after the niche, but found my way up evenutally. Good steady climbing on fine holds.

freudy_love 22/Aug/11 Lead β

Did the one-pitch variation and had a look only at the peg and scant protection possibilities of the lower part of the route while descending on abseil after doing Strapadicktaemi. Awesome route - generally good incut holds and only one tricky move - the rest just very sustained, steep and intimidating!

Rachel Slater 20/Aug/11 AltLd O/S

Lead the E2 pitch, very exciting though the climbing was very easy for 5b.
