The hidden slab on top is absolutely disgusting in the wet.. so much moss that hiking boots would be better than climbing shoes

Really lovely, balancy slate wall then teeter up the mossy roof

Great route! Weird climbing followed by a lovely slab. Don't be put off by the moss....and the holds are clean.

Lead with Oli's clips still in. A climb of two completely different halves; up the dyke are awkward moves on clean rock, the top slab is proper balancy slab climbing with some friendly moss and lichen.

top slab needs a brushing, like climbing up a house rocking over onto a 40 degree roof.
