A quality route with a hard, slippery and fingery pull past the second bolt, and fine crack-climbing higher up.

One of the best routes here

Very hard moves to pass the 2nd bolt. Now fully bolted but it still maybe worth taking a few small wires as its a little run out in places.

A main wall 'original' the lower section of which is getting no easier! Is it me, or have holds deteriorated in recent years?!

A typical Horseshoe main wall route i.e. pretty good and good training for the greater ranges. Also as typically pointlessly badly bolted - only one more bolt would have been needed to be a standard sport route.

Fierce and crimpy low down but only for a couple moves - still only 6c. Upper crack is a nice finish.

Unbelievably polished. Much harder than the 7a's I've done here. Third bolt is crappy aluminium which would snap if you fell clipping the forth. Badly needs re-bolting.
