Once the most popular route at Horseshoe, up the crack and groove. Showing its age a bit and high(ish) in the grade.

Route is now polished ,soapy and unpleasant in its' lower half.

needs the old 8mm bolt near the top groove replacing - well past its fall by date

Thought the lower half was the best part of the route with nice powerful moves. the top is nice, technical and delicate climbing. Felt a bit harder than some of the 6b+'s ive done.

3 star route of the quarry. i think it would scrape in at 6c in many places for the powerful nature of the start, the rest is a path though.

Wasn't actually as polished as I was expecting. Quite a nice start then an easy rest at the middle and a hardish move right near the top. 6b+ is about right i would say.

Requires a determined approach, but not has hard or polished as I expected. 6b+ is spot on.
