The crack on the right-hand side of the slab is a widening thrash, recommended for those who feel like a punch-up.

This is a fantastic route. Short spells of offwidth thrashing with good gear in between. Loads more satisfying than three pebble slab and the rest.

HS 4c implies either superb protection or short-lived difficulties. This is sustained and (unless you have something bigger than a Camalot 3, preferably two of them) poorly protected. Great fun though, in a funny sort of way.

Slight difficulty in establishing oneself on the face, so 4c for that? Rest of it is easy enough and typical Puttrell stuff. Cool if you like that kind of thing.

I took my first lead fall on this route, reaching for the first chalk stone, if you spy a much needed pocket on the large face at the bottom, you shouldn't fall... :)
A very sustained route, the thrashing gets more strenuos the higher you climb. Mind your ankles, I left some of mine behind near the top section! I agree with current grade though, a fun route!
