hlegge 22 Jun 2nd O/S Lovely photogenic position and cool climbing. With the in situ peg which was pretty solid the exposed interesting moves are well protected and enjoyable! Soft compared to pocket crack.

gav 5 Jul, 2017 Lead RP Went for it as first route of night, but struggled to commit to the step out. Finally made it, but pumped out quickly and bottled the remainder. After James lead it and I seconded it, I resolved to get it done, so straight back on and climbed with no hesitation or thought. Probably E2 5c if your head is screwed on and you trust the peg. Being a wuss, however...
