A steep start leads to some fine crack climbing. Climb the ramp of Brown's Blunder for 8m (thread - possible stance) then pull rightwards though the bulges to gain the crack splitting the wall above. Follow this with interest, passing a small resting ledge at half-height to a steep grass exit.

The vertical grass /loose rock finish is very exciting-needs some public spirited person to dig out a trail up to the belay.The finish would be lethal if the grass is wet.

Really good route but wish I had read the comments about the vertical choss finish beforehand! Could the next person to do Aquarius please take some old gear/tat and leave a belay at the top of the crack/below the choss?
