Good, physical climbing up the steep corner and narrow chimney/crack. A forceful approach pays dividends but don't forget to place the bomber gear.

I find this route really enjoyable. Bomber pro too.

Wasnt sure which way it went at the top......Both were 5a ish but right felt HVS and left felt VS

Maybe I was being unduly hesitant due to being hungover but I found this route extremely strenuous - I was pouring sweat by the top but it was great fun.

Tough route, but very good, with a variety of climbing as the route progresses. Put in a bit of extra time to make sure your gear is really good.

Strenuous route but VS seems about right. Large nuts / hex's required for the bomber gear. I finished left, seems the better line at the time.

not that pumpy so long as you can bridge very widely and not get drawn deeply into the corner -an easy intro to the style of a lot of the routes on the ruckle.

Really good route with tonnes of bomber gear. As the above comment not too strenuous if you can bridge. Over too soon
