12m. "The classic of the crag". Which is about right. Packs a lot into a short route, no hard moves but pumpy on the legs. Climb the obvious corner and move right around the small roof to a pleasant easier finish.

Was a bit unsure, so toproped first, quite glad as found it tricky but its easy enough when you know how. So went for the lead after without issue.

Much better than the VS next door. Bomber gear protects the crux.

Bottled the onsite lead and resorted to top-roping, found it pumpy as hell with some sketchy gear, one to work on I think...

A bit too onsight - only had a bouldering guide, so I went left at the roof, as I thought that looked more logical (read easier :p) better go back and do it properly. Good committing moves.

After a successful top rope and my trad rack at home i decided the solo was on. Did well till just below the overhang were i had a small psych out but got it together.
