Awkward and exposed moves up the steep chimney directly above the exposed step across a wide gap in the ledge.

Difficult to grade in my opinion - moves felt generally awkward and exposed, not particularly technical. Slings required as the protection is generally right at the back of the chimney.

Not wrong about the awkward and exposed ! A very enjoyable route, but you have to go right into the crack to place gear, but then you have to back out to make a number of exposed moves. Good solid HS though (wouldn't be in a rush to do it again !)
