From the triangular niche, follow the thin seam above (small wires) finishing through a stepped overlap.


Thin seam is not well protected by small wires. Much better with small friends.

Fell off nearly from the top and broke my ankle. Mention that the top bit is not good to protect.

Poorly protected. Perhaps even deserving of a 'fluttery' symbol? Nice climbing though!
Nick Smith - 05/Apr/03

I only seconded this but took out a number of good pieces of pro. The climbing is really good.

My leader got 5 good bits of gear in, all of them small to medium wires. There is good protection for the top but it's not easy to spot. Superb route.

I managed to absolutely lace this route! Plenty of smaller cams and a couple of bomber nut placements. Easy HS IMHO but a fun little route.
Evil Twin 1 - 23/Aug/04

Good route, a couple of good wires to protect it.
Chris Owen - 25/Nov/04

The protection is fine
Rasputin - 21/Jun/05

Did this in freezing cold february mist. Numb fingers throughout. A great little route. Pro was adequate but needed searching out in the top third.

Agree with Evil Twin 1, got 5 solid runners in... really nice climb.
