Too glassy and greasy. Large loose block at the start (the obvious first handholds), beware.

Slopes, hexes and slings describe this route well, tree at top cut down so descent was via the castle...

Excellent value for HVS, more of a head game than physically demanding. Laced it with hexes.

Very scared on this route, the polished rock sapped quite a lot of my confidence. Glad I pushed through though! Lots of good gear.

had a break before getting over the block near the top, should be sble to do it with no rests

with Ciaran
Elsier 24/Aug/10 2nd

I really got the fear just seconding this, it's really scary, especially as the big block higher up doesn't sound very solid although I'm sure it is! I sat on the rope a few times in an attempt to convince myself that there was no need to panic, I couldn't go anywhere but didn't really help.

Really nice sustained climb, a proper old school trad route! Take plenty of large gear, had to run out the first section quite a bit!

with Donald Somerville
Brendan 09/Mar/10 Lead O/S

Brilliant route, really sustained. It will swallow all the big gear you have, worth taking as many hexes as you can! Having led a few E1s since I think this is probably worth E1 too.

Not a climb to try when still a bit wet. In the guide book it says large friends would be useful for lower section, they would be really really useful...
