Excellent and well protected. Not too pumpy if you get your feet right.

Good route, quite sustained in the lower section with a hard move near the top of the route. Very clean.

Got pumped after climbing the tricky first few moves and dropping my nuts, down climbing and then straight back onto the wall. Very satisfying route with a choice of positive crimps or crack climbing. Brought 2 seconds up

Little bit strenuous hanging around to place the gear, but nice moves on decent holds. Definitely easier with good footwork.
