Good climbing with a hard, but short-lived crux section. Things are much easier above, with the biggest jug in the world at the lower-off.

Lower off is knackered, (one bolt gone, the other really bent),
but it is easy enough to climb over to the lower off on hot from the forge

A good route but the crux is slightly contrived, harder than some of the 7a+'s I've done on the Island.

Apparently the single bolt lower off is actually one very long (and thus deep) staple. It still looks dodgy though.

Ben speaks the truth (from time to time).
That is indeed a long, long bolt and I pre-bent it into that strange shape cos I wanted it to look a bit like the starship enterprise (actually I had a theory about it encouraging the rope away from the rock)

Yeah, best to lower off the adjacent anchors. Enjoyable middle section then a tough crux sequence.
