Climb delicately past a hidden nut-slot (now a finger hold) to reach a square layaway/undercut. Make a huge reach or improvise to grasp a hidden jug and move up to a rest. The steepening wall above leads to a couple of tricky finishing moves.

Three attempts to get the first crux clean. Then climbed it clean twice, but fell on the second crux. Only the first attempt was in daylight, the rest was by torch

Did it - but only just. The overlap is unkind to short people!

Fell just after the 3rd bolt. Big move - must return when fresh!

With much beasting. Need to return with endurance and do it clean.

Lovely route. Two good interesting sections with good rest in the middle. Long reach/slap crux to find a pocket, that proved hard to find even with the beta.

some great moves on both crux sections, particlarly nicein the evening sun. I have to agree with votes for low in tge grade because of the rest in the middle.

One day, maybe. Had several goes on it trying all the moves on the route, and reckon I could get up to the crux when fresh. The crux long-reach from the side-pull is beyond me at present, though.
