The prominent groove gives a fine climb, though the approach has its fair share of dodgy rock. It may have a peg in it, but it doesn't need one. The main groove is pumpy fun.

Somebody has ripped off the flake used to enter the top groove. Slightly trickier.

a fanatastic route and the hardest HVS at stoney, the crux is the overhang but its not easy after that. although gear is good!!

Really good route, lower section needs care but upper section much more solid. Has a big feel to it.
