Claiming the onsight as I last did it 14 years ago. The climbing's not hard but the gear is perhaps more decorative than functional.

No difficult moves but sustained and NO GOOD GEAR. Mark climbed the neighbouring arete but his gear placements let me sidle up Sudoxe, which I enjoyed, but I will not be back to lead it. Not difficult but serious.

My gear consisted of a couple of rps half touching rock. Amanda said they looked good, I think she's after the life insurance.

for once the ukc logbook has the right grade, never E1, but who cares - really lovely climbing on wonderful small holds with good enough gear. shame it's not 40 meters longer.

Really really nice route. Packs a lot of good climbing into its short length.
