Follow the obvious and brutal overhanging crack trending right. Good large cams in the crack. Climb upwards and left where it peters out. Finish by a tree. Beware loose rock.

Oh dear. Quite easy, if strenuous, for HVS, but I made a complete hash of it. Got a cam in below the in-situ wire, then promptly slipped and fell onto it while surveying the next move. Having tested it, I clipped the bomber wire, and then knackered myself trying to place completely unnecessary gear mid crux. Ended up with a cam in my hand that I couldn't get into the crack, and couldn't get back onto my harness. Unwilling to drop my shiny new Dragon, I decided to fall off again. After a good rest I easily passed the crux and finished the route.

Nice climb on big holds. Generally good for feet too if you look and tread carefully. Hanging around to place gear was not good though. A selection of medium to large cams would have been useful. Got pumped from gear faff but still made it to the top clean!

Rhys convinced me I could do it .. and by george, he was right. Wop in a nut and cam to start and just get up there. The climbing is not too technical - more pumpy at the start. So it was a case of just doing the moves and keep on going. Really happy that I did it .. just shows how you have to commit to the moves .. theres no might climb it, or might make the move. Just do it and keep going.

Laybacks all the way up. fairly pumpy start but as I was 2nding didn't have to stop to put gear in so didn't struggle too much. That was my first climb involving any serious lay back climbing so took a couple of moves to trust my feet but once I did it went ok.
