UKC Logbook Description
Take care, April 19 this route was home to millions of harlequin ladybirds. I accidentally killed a nest of them on the first jug under my fingers before finding out later on they bite. Made for a grim route.

Rob Davies 29 Feb, 2016 2nd Remembered this being hard from doing it in the 70s. The move into top section of crack is really awkward unless you're small enough to fit in the back - almost like Vedauwoo. Seemed like a good 5a move to me, not HVD! (and Neil refused to go near it)
