A superb pitch but rope drag can be a problem. Scramble up and climb the wall on pockets to good holds. Continue up and left until a reach gains a good flake. Move right through the bulge on poor holds and pull over to a lower-off. Follow the crack left until a pull right through the bulge reaches the belay. There is some loose rock on the extension.

A fine pitch. Sustained and varied climbing. Best to finish at the first lower-off.

The upper finnish is best avoided.
The first part is brilliant low in the grade on compact rock.
The upper part is sharp and loose, do not fall here, the rock around the bolts tend to be blocky and loose.

Great climbing that's not too sustained - easy for 7b

I'd agree that the upper 10m doesn't really add anything (only lots of rope-drag!)
