The name says it all. A hard start then easier going.
Squeek, E5 6a - The wall to the right of the upper section has been climbed. The crucial peg may be missing.

Utter utter crap,even for stoney.Avoid.

Thought the moves were ok. Quite run-out above marginal gear for the last quarter of the climb. Take care at the top - currently lots of vegetation and not much rock.

Very run out at the top, and hence possibly worth E2. Some good moves low down...but agree it's pretty crap.
Dave Johnson - 27/Jun/09

This route is okay, the moves the gear etc. Thoughtful maybe but okay.
Good warm up.

Dave - I think I'll take your word for it. Any route to attract the comment "utter utter crap, even for stoney: avoid" - from someone who isn't me - is probably not ok in my book.
Jon Stewart - 29/Jul/10

Stiff start and a bit of a run out above some small wires at the top (but still safe). Not a bad route
