Some good, open face climbing in its upper half. Take care low down as the bolts are spaced and the rock friable.

Hard for the grade - crumbly choss lower down,dusty holds higher up, run out. Very unpleasant indeed. Shite.

The quintessential pile of horrible, run-out, sandy tottering choss. Frightening.

Forgot to say I nearly got crushed by rock the size of a small telly that my mate pulled off - twice!! Be very careful.

I thought this was potentially a brilliant route. The first half is sustained and fairly steep, the next section involves some excellent, intricate slabby stuff, and then there's a juggy finish. It is still a bit crumbly in the bottom half but just needs a bit of care and should clean up if it gets enought traffic. The bolts are excitingly spaced - not one to push your grade on - but I thought scary rather than dangerous.
