An excellent route - certainly fingery (crucial pocket hard to spot) and with a surprisingly difficult finish, just when you thought it was all over.

Excellent fingery crux. Tall people seem to make huge reaches between pockets. I found the intermediate crimps were quite adequate.

Great moves on crimpy holds. Excellent!
Morten - 06/Oct/03

Easy climbing up to the mid height ledge and a really absorbing crimpy section above the overlap.
Ben Stokes - 31/Jan/05

Brilliant route. Far far better than it looks from the ground!

Quite easy moves, but a bit difficult to find some of the holds on the on-sight.

this is very onsightable for a portland 7a in my opinion! the hard intense bit, altho very fingery isnt that long! if you find the grips which is always the case the moves arent that hard! your aided especially in this sector by the brilliant crunchy but grippy blacknor rock that allows you to stand in most places if you have a bit of belief in your feet! good route
