Great technical face moves, but the contrived start spoils the overall feel of the route. Don't touch the chimney, it is off limits.
Nondescript start leads to some great face climbing on the upper wall.
If this has been overwhelmingly voted as a 2 star route, why hasn't it been transferred as such in the guidebook? Well worth the two stars, really varied and balanced and the chimney doesn't feel too close.
I think the moves at the start are great - technical and sustained with a great (and hard) rock-over after the third bolt but perhaps I wouldn't have discovered this if I hadn't needed more than one go to do the thin moves above the overlap. One of the hardest F6c+ routes I've done - perhaps I'm rubbish at slabs.
A really good route which deserves more recognition. The start is a bit close to the chimney but the climbing is good. The top wall above the overlap is superb with a flowing sequence of moves on small holds.
