The rising line of cracks and blobs gives a wonderful pitch. The moves to reach the central ramp are quite committing. Climb the cracks (good but hard earned gear) to the ramp. Move up ledges on the left to reach a small groove. Climb this to its top then step left and belay as for Minotaur.

I didn't think that this was particularly worthy of the fluttery heart symbol. The only slightly bold section is near the bottom where you can get a small wire in a crack out to left. This then protects the tricky move right. After that it is good gear and steady climbing.
Fantastic route!!

Brilliant, classic wall climbing.

Definitely not high in the grade or particularly bold, great gear where you need it. Superb route

if bloody sunday is given E4 then this feels definitely a full grade harder. so hard E4 or easy E5?? superb climbing worth 3 stars

The run outs and the fact people generally find it harder than bloody Sunday means it's e5
