Gain a standing position on a ledge at 3m. Work up rightwards to a crucial stretch for the next break. Easier climbing leads to a resting place below the headwall which provides an excellent finish.

2 two bolts clipped thinking I'd be dogging it. As it turns out I clipped the chains in a oner!

Tried to lead (as 6c+ in't book) but gave up. Fairly hard move to pass the overhang, b1 to 2. Choice of 3 holds for left hand, crap undercling / pinch at full stretch or mine users the less likely looking groove above right hand gaston.

Martin Bagshaw 17/Sep/17 Lead RP

Very bouldery around 1st bolt. Glad not to have yet another open account.

badgerjockey 03/Jun/17 Lead dog

Strenuous shouldery move right of the first two bolts then delicate lovely technical climbing above. Sure to get this when fresh

Probably 6c for tall, nails otherwise so 6c+ seems a decent compromise

Pleased to on sight putting the draws in the crux is a cracking move and the top head wall is a lovely way to finish!

Nick Russell 11/Sep/15 Lead RP

Not sure what to make of this one. Either the lower section is mostly to the right of the bolted line or it's really hard (going direct). Good rock, reminiscent of the crawl buttress at Ban-y-Gor.

I thought this had a tough crux but I also thought it was 6c! At 7a it's pretty fair i'd say

Messed up "the move" on my first go, but was going for it quite well. Got it first redpoint - only really one hard move but nice balancey moves on the headwall.

Si dH 25/May/10 Lead dog

Flashed the whole thing (with some beta for the crux) but somehow managed to slip off a massive foothold on the easy bit just after the crux. Not sure how that happened! Still, pleased with the attempt. Surely more like 6c+ as given in the latest guide?

Once I'd figured the move between bolts 1 and 2, the rest wasn't too hard.
