Started as for orangutang but then traversed right into cyber world my mistake. Unaware of the description, once on the right hand-side of the roof tried to go straight up (not 6a+) instead of the chossy right hand side escape. After 10 humiliating tries then choss it was!

Nice route, interesting move thorough the overhang. A good reach makes it easyer. Loose block marked up under overhang. Safe easy climbing.

JoeFoster59 31/May/17 Lead O/S

I think I may have top roped this at one point but I can't remember it so I'm claiming the onsight. Quite awkward getting over the roof pretty fun though. A loose block or two adds excitement.

Wanted to lead it but the rain came in and 6a+ slate in the wet is too much for me to want to lead. Enjoyed the second though.

Will led first. Then me on his gear, then Paul. A worthwhile route. Pretty steady for the grade. The loose spike near the bottom has fallen out, but BEWARE, there is a loose block under the roof which would really spoil your belayers day if you dislodged it, so be careful!

The tall will be able to reach the flat topped hold beneath the roof, the rest of us just have to climb up the arete. Highly technical bridging for the first few metres.

I'm 6ft and I could only just reach the essential jug, which I only found because there seemed no other way to do the move which implied there must be something hidden up there. Technical start, tough moves past the roof.

Had to work the bottom couple of moves to actually get onto the rock face. But once done was good fun. Worth a star. Challenging all the way through, each trickier move often followed by a slightly easier one before becoming trickier again. Enjoy!
