The left edge of the slab has a hard start using a vague crack and polished holds. It eases a little above.


Birchen's soft grading strikes again! Pleasant solo warm up though.

The photo shows it finishing up the separate block further back. Couln't find a route up there at this grade. Did I miss something?

Easy solo till reaching the wall/nose on the separate block at the top. Started it twice,backed off twice. Whats the secret for this HS?

Completly agree, cracking route, fiarly easy but with little gear on the start slab, Could not get up the nose at the back,

HS 4b. Great route aswell, slighty bold start.

Felt pretty bold, particularly after the brass offset I'd placed in the first thin crack was spat out!
