135m, 3 pitches. An excellent, clean, quick drying route. Climb the cracks on the left edge of the right slab to a steep wall, where there is a choice of cracks going left is slightly easier. Traverse the flake right past a peg and through a bulge. Climb up the slab via the path of least resistance.

Didn't manage the crux clean on second...slab climbing practice definitely required.

Lead p2. Enjoyed this, crux is short but thought provoking.

Led pitches 1 & 3. Great route, relatively straightforward but quite a few run out sections. Interesting crux moves which come as a bit of shock compared to the rest of the climb.

I think when you actually do the crux move it is normal 4c, it just gives the impression immediately beforehand that it will be harder...

Great route. Worth splitting last pitch in two to belay just after the crux.

Lovely granite slabs, sparse pro, started raining after pitch one, then didn't stop. After pitch 2 and much rain the friction waned and the wet 4c crux looked hard. Rather than push our luck we vowed to return for the top pitch.
