High in the grade. Start at a crack and finish at a jutting block on the skyline.

This is not a route for beginners - much the same could be said for the following 3 to the left. All are solid 5's. In particular the belay on this route has been moved higher - the top move wouldn't be out of place on a 6a. Be warned!
Luke + friends - 30/May/01

We climbed after Luke + friends and were pre warned but must disagree. The top looked tricky but was quickly done by using the vague handholds and working feet up slowly until you can reach a horizontal break.
Albie - 31/May/01

Wouldn't be fun if we all agreed would it! I still maintain that you wouldn't expect such vague moves on a 4. But hey - they're worth a look and the situation's nice.
Luke - 08/Oct/01

i agree with luke, this is no way 4+, even before the top move to the lower off (which i backed off in favour of the next one along).

I agree, the top is far too technical and sparse for a 4+ Not a climb for an average 4+ leader!
Paul Phillips - 22/Jul/02

The top move is not out of place now the rest of the route is getting a nice polish to it.
Gareth - 16/Jun/03

felt like a 4 + to me if a weeny bit scary but definitely do-able
Becky T - 18/Jun/03

high in the grade with some odd moves and stances.
Simon Paver - 07/Sep/03

top move does look scary, especially if you're short but holds on left buttress make it possible to reach the horizontal break and finish
Carolyn - 28/Apr/04

Probably at least 5 if you Compare it to Jacobs Ladder...
Wilbur - 25/Apr/05

the moves at the top may seem daunting but are definatly not 5 let alone 6a!! as to the belay being raised!!! wot are you on about?? don't talk nonsense because your ego's been battered on a 4+, keep trying and eventualy you'll breeze this route. it will teach you technical moves on good holds that you will use again on harder routes. enjoy

i found this route to be a tad hard for a 4+. the top section takes too much working for it to be that grade.

nice little route though!!

I felt this route needs more that a F4+ climber, leading, onsight, therefore it cant't be 4+.
About F5c, I think.

Tricky finish, reckon this is a 5. Nicer than the routes to its left, much less strenuous, especially if u keep ur feet moving.
