Climb through the overhang with difficulty, and a polished foothold, to join the previous route on its jugs.

Actually not that slippery really, place the feet carefully, the less polished top wall is a testament to the number of people who have failed on the overhang!

not too bad, although the one key foothold for pulling directly through the overhang is very polished. The upper wall has very little polish by comparison and is just a series of pleasent jugs.

Slippery ?! slightly polished maybe but not that bad. The holds are all there and spaced lovely. Its a great Severe (no more no less)

I agree it is a bit polished but not as bad the description makes out. Add in the big jugs just above the overhang it really isn't an issue. Nice little problem but the route doesn't really sustain the interest at the same level above.
