Why is this route not more of a classic - it's got everything that's great about Grit all in one route - Stiff at the grade and totally satisfying

Didn't climb it very well, getting too dark to see anything and disappointed not to enjoy as much as I remembered from 2nding previously.

Needs micronuts to protect bottom few moves. Tell the leader not to hang off them or you can't get the buggers out!

crux felt straight froward this time or at least the holds felt much bigger, would probably be a classic HVS at millstone

Fine route with sustained interestingness! Thought solid E1, considering a series of hard moves above not-brilliant gear.

Graeme Hammond 08/May/10 2nd O/S

a good climb, has a hard but well protected crux low down but maintains interest although much easier above. One to go back and lead! watch out for the loose block above the tree!

Quality route, lovely rock and climbing with a far from obvious crux, small wires useful.
