Pleased with this one. Good fun juggy flakes at the start (Alien proving its worth once again) then a lovely rest before the hard bit. Faffed a little getting cams in the break, changing my mind a couple of times but eventually was happy enough with them to commit to the move. A really long reach for the crap pocket got me standing in the break, then did a rather inelegant flop into the hole above.

definitely felt like a 5c move off the pebble and small sloper, but the pocket was very greasy. Good cam below your feet but not sure if you'd go tight before you hit the ledge if you blow the move up to the lip so felt runout at the top.

I did the first half a few weeks ago as part of a Quien Sabe? variant, and fell off trying to get over the bulge. This time I returned to do the whole route, successfully completed the lower section, then fell off on the crux move on the top part! Nice climb though, despite the aerial antics.

First section's easier than it looks then a nice crux mantel/rockover move gets the pocket. Very nice!

Top roped first, but still took a while to get the bottle for the upper section on the lead. My first E1 lead.

This is a brilliant route. Would love to lead it bit not sure I have got the bottle yet. Crux move is tough.

excellent climbing, though lacking a real line

Bottom half was harder than I'd expected - if Id been doing it in to Quien Sabe expecting an HVS I'd have been pretty pissed! Felt bold, committing, blind and strenuous 5a. The top crux also felt close to 5c to me (I struggled more than on Auricle or Wrong Hand Route), but it wasn't an ideal day, the friction in that pocket was poor - suspect on a cold day it would be much easier. Gear is fine for the crux.

Bottom section is about hvs, top section is a cool delicate little groove, reminicent of 'kirkus' corner'.
