Steep upper section provided an interesting challenge but there are solid holds, albeit a little polished, and good gear. Had to ab back down to retrieve a nut though that Nash claimed was stuck... it wasn't that stuck!

Had an alone mission on the crag today top rope soloing the route, straight forward start and a steep finish but a good fun route just need a partner to lead it !!

It didn't look that steep from the bottom but the top wall and crack definitely required a short sequence on committed moves, good gear though.

Walked up the first section unsurprisingly, then ploughed into the hard section full speed. Got a few good pieces of gear in, but didn't have my hands and feet in the right place. Retreated a couple of moves, sorted my life out and powered through the last few moved. Awesome route, just for those last few moves.

VS in guide book but felt in between v and vsd, struggled with overhang, three attempts and over but realistically could have made it first time, think if had been with more encouragement would have been much more straight forward. Great way to end first morning climbing!

Brilliant climb. Really enjoyed this. Well protected but hard to place gear once you start moving up the cracks as strenuous positions. Managed to get a cam in but without could be a nasty fall. Not an easy VS, maybe even HVS. Fantastic though.

My first ever 5a move and it was HARD! When you get to the top of the climb look 1ft left for some great hand holds.
