Oh dear, made a bit of a hash of this, climbed in my very old mountain multi pitch shoes, managed first crux onto the slab fine, and up the overhanging crack at the top but couldn't get established on the slab or reach across to the final crack of the groove. Last gear was 1/2 metre below my feet, so when i eventually ran out of strength, had to do a very tricky downclimb of the overhanging crack! Lowered off changed shoes and also found that i could traverse across to the groove much easier just slightly lower than i was trying on much more positive holds. Ah well!

Very nice route. Didn't find it pumpy at all, I thought the slabby corner with the peg low down was the crux. Avoided laybacking on the higher crux, bridged up to the good holds.

Great route. Hard move into the finish of the Groove but good gear. (Still a little scary though)

Nice climb, really good line and great gear when you need it.

Great route. Very airy move at the top. Should get 3 stars IMO.

Done this after I had led The Groove. The move past the peg felt easier this time. Felt more strenuous than The Groove. Well protected. Couldnt get one of Alan's wires out of the corner above the ledge.
