Enjoyable route which thanks to the two sit down rests feels a little short lived. Still seems dropable post cross-through move. Done putting the draws in after walking all the way into Maky and loosing all psych for climbing, luckily convinced out of the bar and onto this just before sunset.

First go today placing the draws. Wasn't even boxed. Don't know what I was playing at yesterday.

Went to the lower off at 28m, didn't realise you could go further. maybe only 7a+ to here. got it 2nd go, almost a flash on someone elses draws having watched them first. Ace climbing in 3 distinct sections, shame about the bivi ledge midway.

OS to first chain. Then tried the colossal extension and fell off. Probably 7b+. 100M rope needed!

backed of 2 bolts from the top (i think). despite the rockfax stating that the route finished at 28m it actually takes the full length of the crag, well over 50m pitch. appartently its 7a+ to the first anchor, 7b to the top?
