Similar to Sacred Angel, but slightly better and tougher.

One of my favourite routes! Once you start on the top headwall there's no stopping. You might want to dust off the top holds to maximise the chances of the onsight - but no sneaky looking down to spot the crucial jug!!

Definitely a two star route, sustained and harder than Sacred Angel.

Great crimping at the top. Quite reachy going through the small overlap in the middle for shorties like me

Sacred angel, IMO is far far better.

Much preferred this to sacred angel: pleasantly sustained and interesting moves.
