An unlikely looking route at the grade which is well worth doing. Climb the left edge of the wall which is protectable once the first intimidating moves have been negotiated.

Intimidating first move, then the gear arrives. An unlikely look severe route, worth doing.

I may have been off-route but I absolutely bricked it on this climb - stiff for the grade I'd say.

Like Rob I may have been off route but I only managed to find two gear placements on this. Good job the climbing gets easier as you get higher.

where exactly does this route go. There appear to be 2 seperate routes here. One starting on the left of the gap in the ledge (looked easier and better protected and a bit polished) and one starting from the right hand side of the gap in the ledge. This was well protected to start with but run out at the top, although the holds were great. A lovely route.

Couldn't suss this one at all. Started above the break in the ledge and went straight up. After about 10 foot minimal gear, and no sign of any placements on a featureless wall. Downclimbed to avoid an epic. Lots of holds but no gear, does it move left slightly ?????????

Got it! - I was on Face Central (Doh!) thought it was a bit strange, and now it all makes sense.

Left from the break, then straight up. Good holds which get much better as you gain hight. Lots of gear (although it doesn't look like there is when you start).
