andrewmc 25 May, 2015 Lead rpt Takes lots of rubbish micro gear but the occasional bomber nut placement. Easy angled slab but really thin for the grade, a few long reaches from high steps needed, very sustained on the feet without many rests! Fantastic route.

peter.ravenscroft27 24 Sep, 2014 Lead Lead today without knowledge of what it was, assuming it would be a casual baggy Server, turned into classic bold slab climbing. i considered at the top it was a Bold VS or a soft touch HVS... turns out i was bob on! Cracking route. used a micro nut at the second crux
