Nice little route. Pad would be useful for the moves before the break

The ground up attempt is still on, got to the break and wished I had my big cam. Good climbing though!

Went way too far left at top and ended up attempting some ridiculous dyno.

Pleased to get the bottom clean, quite technical. Tough getting out of the fist jam below the top- it's a lot easier once you know where the good holds are.

pleased to get it first. pumpy if you try to place gear, easier to just go for it.

Short and sweet but pretty pumpy - nearly blew the final moves!

A great little route. Spent a lot of energy rearranging the small pro lower down so had to fight hard to top it out cleanly.

A good climb, with a lovely unusual move for grit past the under cut. Found the well protected upper wall the crux and possibly 5c as others have mentioned.

Top bit of fist / arm jamming left me flummoxed, so finished seconding up crack on the left.

Lead with pre placed gear due to failed attempt. Well protected crux. Techy climbing to filthy fistjamming to a bit more techy stuff. Awesome!

Painful handjams, hard moves.

Woodiee 05/Apr/09 Lead O/S

Hardest 5b moves i've ever encountered- more like stiff 5c - start is a v3-4 problem in itself!

Very nice move through the cave but pumpy reaching the top. parts of the upper breaks are good some are not.

A climb of two halves, bottom bit is fingery and cunning, top bit is burly slopers. Placing gear in the good break isn't easy if you're short (but it's bomber).
