A classic pumpy wall of steep cracks and flowstone with the crux at the top. The best 6b+ on Portland.

Oh my god. How good is this route! An awesome line with a set of the biggest holds in the world all the way up it. Do this route, and then do it again!

It's just like Ben says. From below, it looks pretty unlikely but the jugs keep on appearing. Pretty easy for 6b+ if you're used to steep routes.

Brilliant, but not easy if you've got weak arms and are fat.

Almost world class, but would be even better if it had been left to be done on trad gear.

Yes but how many people would have discovered it's charms if wasn't bolted?
