A good route that maintains interest throughout both its pitches. The pegs are old but there is good gear available to back them up. Start below an overhung, right-leaning corner.</br>1) 6a, 25m. Move up the right-leaning corner for 5m, then pull straight up through the bulge to gain a horizontal break. Climb the thin black streak above (2 pegs) to the main fault-line. Move right and up through a bulge to a corner and a stance.</br>2) 4c, 15m. Climb up and leftwards around an arete to enter and finish up a corner.
An excellent first pitch with fantastic rock on the crux wall - the section above the fault is tricky to begin but soon eases, this would be a three star route if the difficulties went on for longer.
Well worth doing. The crux is hard but well-protected by the first peg (looks to be in good nick - July 2005) with good gear below it anyway. The climbing to reach it is absolutely fantastic.
Fantastic first pitch and the second is short but still good.
Both pegs looked at least slightly dubious (August 2009) but there is adequate back up gear.
