Not sure where this climb has suddenly acquired 3* status from on UKC - it is decent and worth a star, but is never a 3* classic.

Tricky moves to start, quite bold in the middle whilst gaining the ledge. No extra trad protection required really though...just need to have a word with yourself and commit!! Great view from the top. Note: Take care with the uppermost lower off bolt as the nut is loose!!

I returned to face my nemisis. IUts still my nemisis! I freaked out a bit on the ledge again... After decsending so that my partner (thanks Jason X) could go back up and put in some extra trad protection, I did it. Just a wire on top of the overhanging block makes a huge difference.

Hard start for the grade. The moves go right from the large ledge so the top 2 bolts are not in a great position. Take some wires to avoid a potential slapper!

Found getting off the ground difficult but eventually found the right combination. Was to scared to move off the ledge to finish. Repeated on a top rope to find that there were very nice big holds when you do manage to pull up and over.

I really liked this climb .. interesting start, then lovely bridging moves up and nice sequence to get onto the face at the top .. lovely.

Watch out for the loose large hanging flake low down (about thrid move up the route). It's big and it's loose and it may well hit your belayer!
