An interesting and satisfying route starting just left of the gully leading up into the recess of Cougar Cleft.
Loose rock [and thorny bushes] made the first pitch quite strenuous as the gear took time to place well throughout and at the belay. Felt more like swanage. Great second pitch, spoilt a bit by the broken [although solid] finish. Looked like i had topped out in someone's backgarden.
I added a direct finish to this in 1992: Get good runners under the final bulge and continue straight through. "McPlumbline Finish" E1/2 5b. Great rock: can't believe it wasn't done years before.
