The big corner has a hard start and a superb, pumpy finish. High in the grade. The ivy needs stripping back from time to time.

After a boulder problem the ascent is comfortable until the second roof; save enough for the exit and final push to the top!

The finish is on buckets or was I on the wrong route!

it is buckets at the end but just after the roof they become hard to find and not quite as 'buckety' as you'd like.
Fell off this from these last moves whilst having the anchors right at eye level.... very annoying and very pumpy... good 7a.

Preclipping the first bolt would help! Managed to grasp up it for the onsight though. Excellent
