Quite easy to climb only one bit of gear required. Very quick to achieve. Use foot holes and side of the big slab at the top.

i was weak and near the top stopped hugging the block and made a cheeky lay back move to top out. :)

I would say arms longer than mine are an essential! Tried going direct three times before giving in and laybacking the left side instead!

very interesting moves on the top block stretched out between the two edges. Slowly up until I could get my feet high enough to reach for the top , rather good.

Not sure I did the climb correctly though. I got my hands over the top having gone upwards reaching around the side, but I went round to one side rather than doing the poorly-protected mantel. (!)

Couldn't quite get the position right when hugging the top block to do it direct, used a foot on wall to right to give myself some balance to reach for top, felt as if the wall wasn't there a flag in same position would have done the same. Nice climb for a damp day though.
