An intense climb, direct to the ledge on Bird's Nest. Finish up the pleasant crack in the wall above.

maybe I was having a bad day or something but this was harder than any other VS I can remember even at swanage. I struggled and I'm supposedly an E3 leader. Always get my arse kicked down here.

I found exactly the same, the first section was nice, but the top finger crack is awful with sweaty hands!

excellent start with a difficult top half. excellent half height rest. Good gear. Very enjoyable, but hard at the grade.

The boulder at the foot has shrunk (think it was there Aug 07). Canít remember if it was previously used. Now a steep pull or jump for the jug. Rest of the route is sustained 5a Ė there are holds left and right of the upper crack.
