18m. With a new lease of life, the route gives enjoyable stress-free climbing with consistent good protection.
Start up the left side of the rib (small wire) and step across onto a ledge and a welcoming vertical nut slot ('hexs' useful). Climb the rib past two bolt runners to a slabby section (small wires) and the top of a projecting diamond-shaped block (bolt out on the left). From the niche above (hidden old peg), reach leftwards over the remaining bulge to another old peg (and good 1.5 + 2 cams) before traversing out left and stepping up onto a short slab. Finish past a final redundant peg to a shared double ring abseil station immediately above on the apex of the rib.

Originally E1 5a. Re-cleaned and re-equipped, with two extra bolts added in 2012.

Left the gear in and pulled the ropes after Mr G's go. Nice climb, worth its star

Awesome, slightly balancey climbing - Easy gear along with the bolts.

Fun climb. If you are climbing later in the year, bring a tarp for your rope to keep the Burdock burs off it.

Felt more like a sport route, at least it did when I'd clipped the first bolt.

Slightly harder and slightly better than I remembered.

Pretty much a sport route and comes in at HVS now I think. Lead on pre placed gear and quickdraws.

with Peter
pheotleyr 12/May/13 Lead RP

quite nice, feels more like an F5 sport route rather than (soft) HVS. Pastiche is so much better though.

a decent climb in its hybrid state. nothing special but fun enough.

Didn't seem loose at all...mostly bolted and not a bad climb. Seemed pretty soft at HVS...

Nasty - leader knocked off several bits including a large-ish block. Seconded gingerly - won't be back! Scary loose choss in too many places.
