Good climbing up the first obvious line of weakness right of Mayday. A good route but with sparse and dubious protection.
Start beneath an obvious white rock scar 5 metres right of Mayday. Climb to the scar and pass it on the left, move back right to avoid a bulge and follow steeper ground to a weakness above (peg in-situ 2011, but back it up). Climb this direct (crux) to gain easier ground and continue with care to the top. Tree stump belays.

Repeat ascent. Nearby stumps are rotting quickly so safer to belay to the solid trees, well back from the edge. This requires a 60mt rope!

Jesus that's scary (but then I'm a HVD climber) Think we went a little off route and finished on nervous laughter. Barely any gear, all of it terrible. Pulled out a rock and fell with it.

A very good nut placement just below the first rusty peg, but a little thin above this!

Utterly terrifying. 5 pieces of gear on the whole route [excluding the easy choss at the top], recon about 3 were good enough. Very grateful to see a reasonable condition peg although I couldnt fiddle a tiny wire in above it to back it up. I'm claiming this as an E1 for the terror value. Pulled off a few handfulls from underneath the bulge aswell when looking for gear...

Start is a bit scrappy but the climbing in the minor groove at the top is very good.

Very little protection, definatly E1. All you need is micro nuts and big balls! Nice moves though.

Very poor protection. backed off just before peg as reaching the peg looked unjustifiable with the shit gear 4 metres below my feet. scuttled off onto easy ground. this route is E1 5a.
