Was shut down on the press move. My excuse was it started to rain/get damp! Really just too weak at that kind of move.

Couldn't see any decent gear above, heart just not in it for this climb today.

Hard, tenuous rockover to get established on the ledge (I thought worth 6a). The gear was uninspiring and I couldn't see any more but there were some ok holds going up and right so I decided to investigate. Fortunately better holds and gear soon appeared. Tricky dance across leftwards between overlaps, then a steep finish un the finishing groove which has good handholds but so-so feet. Great route and pleased to see that I can still onsight sustained pokey E3s (after hardly any hard climbing for two months with the Alps trip and hard rock ticking).

Puzzling crux, or did I go the wrong way?! Nice route apart from that!

a tough little customer! or was i just tired? inobvious line, hidden holds and a puzzling crux (spent A LONG time on that) not to mention sustainedness combined to make this feel significantly harder than the soft E3 suggested by North Wales Rock graded list. a superb pitch that packs it in. well-protected.
