Exiting the thin crack is harder than it looks, the wires are tricky to place and the finish is pretty pumpy. It's good though!
Hard for 5b, the move at the top of the crack feels much harder than 5b - more like 5c - I think part of the top block/flake has come away (I don't know how recently) mabe this would explain it.
Horrendous. Have downclimbed clean from the crux on two seperate occasions now, and I doubt I can summon the motivation for a third attempt. This route sums up everything that is wrong about Curbar - very disappointing feature, rubbish holds, hard to place and not always convincing protection, awkward and unwieldy moves that get you unduly pumped in double quick time, and apart from the start, entirely lacking in climbing pleasure.
Your man's right. This route is bloody awful.
I thought it was rather good, for some of the reasons Fiend dislikes it. It was my rather substantial cousin who removed the hold from it, while seconding me, circa 1996
Thought that this is quite a good route. Good line cracks that require quite a bit of skill to protect and climb and a tricky finish above your gear. Well worth checking out
