A fine finish via the hanging prow out in space is the highlight. Short-lived but thrilling and very exposed.
Unbalanced and somewhat overrated with lots of indifferent climbing and only a short interesting bit.
Glad to see it upgraded here.The step right never felt like HVS 5b.
The Sinister finish has an "airy" move but does not justify E1 5B-you can place protection above your head in the crack at the back of the niche before pulling up-HVS 5A (top end)
I'd say that you've got The Sinister Finish right at mild E1 5b (and I'd also say, if I dare, that its better than the ordinary finish!)
A great effort by John in 1960 with one point of aid. The crag was virttually unclimbed on at that time.
The nest that was on the "tiny" ledge (which is actually quite a respectable size) has now been removed but the ledge is still rather dirty!
Surprisingly good route! Wild positions and a thuggy crux (not technical), on reasonable rock. Worth the effort!
