βeta: The line shown on rockfax is very thin on gear about midway and below that the pro doesnt feel particularly secure. I traversed right at the mid point for the leftwards sloping ramp and flake with good pro behind the flake. Was relying on one small poorly placed cam before i got to the ramp. Got to say the line shown on the rockfax ap at that point feels pretty off for a a climb described as a well protected vdiff.

βeta: Rock is pretty solid and pleasant - just climb anywhere at VD/S/HS as the mood takes you

βeta: I think i just about got the right line but like Cider Nut i found this incredibly unprotected for a VDiff! i got 2 x No. 1 nuts, a friend 1 and a Swedge (!!!!!!!!) in about 40 feet or so of climbing! Suffice to say that large hexes and nuts (which you might reasonably expect on a VDiff) were redundant...

βeta: Didn't manage to find where this route went. I'm sure it can't be that hard, but we were in a bit of a rush (had just fancied a nice easy VD to warm down) so in the end I backed off and abbed for gear (on a VDiff, how embarassing!) Certainly didn't find any part of the initial face that was well protected!!

βeta: The above warning is out of date. An OK climb in a fine position, no significant loose rock, and loads of pro.
