A superb route beneath the prominent tooth at the top of the cliff, sustained and but low in the grade with only a couple of hard moves just above the second niche. There are some good hands-off rests available but watch out for the odd loose block.

Cause of ferocious arguments in the Bosh between HVS and E1..whatever watch out for the loose blocks high up.

Definately HVS, a couple of 5a moves with some amazing hands off rests between them and more gear than you could possibly want! Good though and worth a few stars.

Yep HVS 5a. Hands free rests in the niches and lots of gear.

I'd say the route is pretty much the opposite to what's mentioned in the description. Good rests, but one or two moves fell a little tricky for 5a.

Maybe it's just me being incompetent but I found the gear a little awkward to place on this one.

I thought the rock above the 2nd niche was a bit blocky and hollow which is unfortunate as that was where the gear is!

Definitely E1
