Wild moves up the crack and hanging corner above the start of Want Out. A fine pitch, but avoid the prickly bush on the right.

Tricky moves as the route leans out over the crux. Easy if you are tall as you can reach the jug. Watch out for the tree at the top...!!

Once past the thread it's jugs all the way to the top..it does get a little steeper mind.

Highly amusing. Much easier for the short. The medium and tall tend to get bunched below the overlap.

Strange moves, but the holds are all there. Great route!

6c for exposure, perhaps, coming out over the bulge, but none of the individual moves are that tricky. Don't hurry the last bit after the overhang. Some of the holds are slopey and have dust on them and you'll slip if you are not careful.

Agree with Goi's comments about being bunched below the overlap. Fit people will romp up this as it's a straight jug pulling fest with no single particularly difficult move. If you're short on stamina you'll be in trouble though!
