A bit of a one-move wonder, but a wonderful one move. Gear low down (but only to stop you bouncing even further down the hill and taking your belayer with you), up to small but positive holds then... pretty straight forward once you've done it.

Pleasant and worthy despite some minor scrittle. The landing and setting is suprisingly amenable-feeling given it's elevated position. Committing but not hard. There may (or may not ;)) be a Peenut/RP to protect the finish - but a good solo.

As Fiend says - a lovely solo. In a great "away from the crowds" poition

Quality, could do with a few more ascents to remove lichen
