Excellent climb. Interesting moves and a bold feel. Got really scared on the crux, with my left leg wedged in the gearless break and my right dangling. Took a while to re-adjust in order to make the reach.

Well some years after comments below, flake still there and took my significant weight! Makes a very hollow sound when brushed against let alone tapped! Micro cams below that just above cave, good friend 2 at left end of heathery break well back tricky to place needs very long extender.

Further to Kyaizawa's comment, the flake is still there but is, as he said, visibly moving, I don't expect it to be there very much longer, and I wouldn't like to be under it when it does come off.

A somewhat committing move onto the heathery ledge, but fun!

awful protection for the mantel move. I wonder if anyone weighted the nut in the finger pocket?

*WARNING* Looks like not many people have done the route recently, but the flake on the crux section between the niche and the heathery ledge is loose (with an obvious hollow sound) and will probably come off this winter - at present it visibly moves when pulled. The hold is fairly useful when rocking across and is an important foothold when mantelling. Didn't fancy committing my full weight onto it on lead, making the mantel significantly harder. What hold/lack of is exposed will likely change the grade of the climb.

Couldn't summon the conviction to mantel to heathery break so downclimbed which in hindsight was probably harder!
