A bold route; another of Gardom's fine E3 ticks. It is pushy in its central part, the runners and holds are there, though both take some finding, before moving left to finish. The even bolder direct finish is Old Croc, E4 6a.

I didn't find the runners!Brilliant sequence up the wall though.

Micro's in the layback flake thing high on the face. I wouldn't bother though as your 1 move from the break .

A very fine route and right at the grade, although the gear, though adequate, is not as good nor simple as one might hope. Nice wall climbing above, getting the "nick" could be rather reachy if you're short or don't use your feet well (I didn't =)).

good wall climbing. the nut in the high flake is quite hard to place but i thought the crux move was getting to the break, so was glad to have this pro in. Rps essential for lower gear. solid e3
