A slight climb on snappy rock that is slightly run-out. It follows the flaky crack-line gained direct via a juggy wall and ledge.

Definitely needs another bolt before the LO. It is quite run out even though the climbing is not too difficult but the rock is so loose. F5+

My first OS 6a so was quite chuffed. seemed easy although space between 3rd and 4th bolt is a huge gap and once pulled out if i feel would be a massive fall being near 2 hitting the ground so a little scary. Love it!

As a warm up on a damp day this felt distinctly unnerving with brittle rock and spaced bolts. The moves are nice enough, but another staple or two would be appreciated. A breaking hold could lead to a loooooong fall.
