The gear is there but you have to look for it a bit if you don't have cams. Exposed climbing that rewards the bold climber. loved it.

valentinesbabe 16/Apr/12 2nd O/S

Excellent lead by Charley. No really hard moves, even for shorties. Although gear was a little tricky at the top, it was protected (we've got tricams and small cams though so maybe this makes a difference)and I had to put extra moves in to retrieve it because of the height difference between Me and Charley but it still didn't seem HVS. Really lovely climb, definitely worth Top50.

Jackwd 16/Apr/12 Lead O/S

Nice, easier than Croton Oil!

Should have read the guidebook more carefully. Failing to do cost me a 5c move at the crux. Anyhow, good route.

bold lead, felt pretty thin and balancey in places even on second.

Irn Bruce 05/Sep/09 Lead O/S

Absolutely fantastic. Didn't think this was particularly bold or high in the grade as suggested though. A good set of cams protected throughout but the exposure of the arete and the views sets this apart.
