27m. The route starts up Aberration and continues up Minos. The meat of the route involves pulling on some small side pull crimps but there is a fantastic jug at the end of the sequence and a rest above the roof!

3rd tie on. Shame all the bolts up high are way out to the right (assume this is to do with keeping Flight of Icarus as a trad route) as it makes them an absolute bugger to clip. Amazing route other than that.

Probably one of the best routes I've done in Chee Dale so far!

Awesome route, the write up is right! Off the floor to a decent side pull, then onto some really technical, hard and tricky climbing and credits you with a saviour jug hold at the end of it (thank the lord). This will take some work for me but ill be much better for it.

Clips in then one go. Tricky and a bit too humid for those holds. Keen to try again.

Had a couple of goes. Proper good hard thin face climbing. Felt high-torish actually. Three distinct cruxes I think. Will defo be having a few more goes on this.

Brilliant. And Hard - 7c+? Superb technical climbing weaving a line of weakness up the wall. 3*s!
