as I was soloing this a Japanese lady stuck her head over the top and watched me intensely. The top was quite tricky and her face was constantly off-putting. She didn't move back until I was a few inches away from her.

Soloed to last break but lack of commitment and a swarm of flying ants made me climb down again. Next time without some ants..

One slip at the start, then re-started and did it cleanly, but had to sit on the rope to remove a stubborn cam.

Seconded years ago, in my youth, so felt like an onsight.

Nice layback. Found top hard until someone told me about one particular jam, then suddenly it was easy...

Nice climb up to the break, but didn't want to commit to the final move. Very close, may have just gone for it on another day.

On second attempt after chickening out at the second break, very scary but once you get that top hand jam in its sound

nice layback at the bottom, with great hold just below the hardest section where you need to jam - I hate jamming!

Couldn't make the top jam on a sweaty day so Mike led and I seconded him. Excellent well protected route on lovely rock.

found this pretty tough as couldn't reach the jam at the top and had to do a semi-mantle instead...... also one tough (height dependent) move in the bottom crack

Yo-yoed a bit, rested on a dodgy cam, then backed out sideways from the top moves. All told took about 45 minutes!

Found the top tough but did it in a very inelegant fashion. Fierce little layback to start!
