Gutted to fall off the final route of the day!! Fell off the "tricky exit" bit as my fist jam became 'invalid' as soon as I moved high above it. One thug of a route for its modest looks from below and awkward as hell from start to finish! Expect to leave some skin on it as well. Started it from scratch and nailed it the second time so will claim a 'redpoint' on this one. Great learning experience though.

Left branch (?the obvious line). Not as tough as expected - crack gloves make for easy jamming!

It stopped Ben in his tracks. Some quite tricky moves. We took the right hand option.

Bit of a battle - awkward with lots of jamming and rubbish footholds. Quite fun to second...

really interesting route, laybacking, jamming, off-widths and a mantel got utilised... Finished up the face left of the groove as it was cleaner

RH Branch then a worthwhile finish to the left past a small tree (friend or foe?) into a crack. Jamtastic! Great route and interresting all the way up.

A Good route with unusual climbing

Tiring start then an easy but heavily vegetated finish. The route is in Eastern Grit and is the crack to the left of Finale Groove.
