An excellent little route. On-sight soloed. Very positive holds but be careful!

Joe Brown fell off it so beware!

Yes I know about that. I must have just had one of those moments then when it all came together. I'd never been on the route before and found I it very straightforward.

I've onsight soloed it too and it felt OK but I'd be very leery of recommending that style of ascent.

Fair point Mick. If I can amend my description I will.

It just requires confidence and commitment on those finishing moves!

Know exactly what you mean Sean. Don't think I even stopped when I got to the break just before the tricky bit. I wonder what those moves would get if they were just off the deck? I am NOT a hard climber by any stretch of the imagination.

I had a very good mate whose party piece was to solo down Portfolio, one day an a going up solo he fell off the inital wall, cracked his head and died.
RIP Alan Adshead.

Climbed Portfolio this evening and there was a floral tribute to Alan below the climb. I wondered what the story was - very sad.
