The soaring groove on the left-hand side of the wall is a fine line, although the groove itself is relatively easy. Move up with difficulty to the groove proper and continue up it more easily.

No better than the slabby 6c+s to the right and a bit easier.

Brillient and not particularly hard for 6c+

Only 2 star? Hard and bouldery at bottom, but only 6b+ at most after 4th bolt. Another bolt between the 2nd and 3rd would make the route a lot more pleasant if you go on it already pumped as I stupidly did.

Nice route, but not quite worth 3 stars. Superfly guy (to the R) is better. 6c+

Some think sport is about the moves; this route has moves - and a line, hence 3*.

I agree - this route deserves 3 stars. A brilliant pitch.

S'alright. My best onsight to date. Certainly didn't think it was any more than 6c. Superfly Guy is better.

The groove on this is awesome. Better than Superfly Guy.

Felt like a 1 star 6b+. Nice, but easy groove at the top.
