Reasonable climbing but there are some dubious looking blocks on the upper wall. The line crosses Malhereuse at mid-height.

worthless, contrived lower section, dodgy big block in the middle and awkward top.

It won't "clean up" where it counts. The dodgy block is all or nothing. When that goes it will be radically different

Did this route for the second time yesterday and the loose block was still very alarming. It will go at some point and it may well wipe out somebody when it does. Given that Gigg is a sports venue where the less cautious may go expecting "safe" climbing, I think there is a strong case for de-bolting this line.
