Pleasant, but only one E1 move.

More "keyhole" nut placements than you'd find in a deranged locksmiths! Great fun.

Mock Trad lead. On top top, trailing mock rope behind to practice placing gear. Climbed with Martain Doyle.

A really nice route, bomber gear but would be good as a 6a+ clip-up, then this would be a brilliant intermediate venue with a warm-up.

Good fun. Only one tricky move, and the gear is brilliant, so probably only HVS?

Enjoyable climbing, but had a slight worry about the bomberness of some of the gear. Think both E1 and 5b are fair for this outing.

Got dripped on lots by the water coming down the next climb along!

with Dave
Wilbur 04/Sep/08 Lead O/S

Agree that this is soft in terms of the moves. More like 5a. But i think that E1 5a would still be fair as the gear is fairly uninspiring for the entirety of the route..
