βeta: This is a great pitch on good rock and deserves a couple of stars! An aesthetically pleasing crux too!

Philoosh 8 Feb Lead RP Got this 2nd go after an initial scope on the crux sequence. Didn't have the strength to hang around working it out but once I knew what to do the pitch went. Loved the movements through the crux and on to the top.

HannahC 12 Jan Lead O/S The onsight came as a complete shock! Went up to check out if it would make a good one day RP and managed to battle through to the chains. Well bolted throughout with no overly hard moves
