Found the start fine, struggled with the diagonal ramp (not as positive as it looks!) and groove above was tricky too. Nice and safe after the initial unprotected but steep moves off the floor (could clip stick thread if wanted).

Tricky rockover move to get to the jugs, then a tricky skip right (thanks to Tim for pointing out one of the footholds).

Had sam's gear until below the crux, then led clean and onsight to top. a cool route, an interesting wet hold to finish the crux!

F6b+ish. Didnt think there was any 6a, but a fair bit of 5c. Upper corner still nice and technical. Wet and raining.

No harder than Pocket City or rather Pocket City is no easier than this (harder I'd say). Anyway, very good indeed, quite physical initially. Thought line in NWR and description didn't match: the stuck on blob is well up and left of sloping shelf (that I traversed right on); medium cam useful for this bit (size .5 BD cam was perfect).
