Had a surprisingly hard time on this! Start felt more like VS to me. Reachy and lacking good holds all round.

Enjoyed this one. Not used to climbing on sandy rock, felt more like HS. Bold start on sandy, rounded holds.

Bitterly cold morning, made fingers work. Other than that, quite enjoyable climb. Quite easy for a severe and well protected.

Found the start really tricky for a Severe...enjoyable in a scary kind of way

hard start. put a big cam in the left crack before doing the next but. Not Severe 4b?

with Denzil
Higher Primate 06/Jun/11 Lead O/S

Very little gear for the first half of the climb with difficult moves off the ground to get to the first rest with good feet. Harder than the 4a stated in the Rockfax due to the start and a size 5 cam is needed for the first gear placement in the crack to the left (up the line of wonderland).

Not a great route at the start, (slipped about abit as it was pretty moist) but the traverse under the tree higher up was nice

Got stuck at the crux (too reachy), kit above me fell out, fell with it and swang out under the overhang then game over.
