An excellent little pitch. Make a hard rockover above the low overhang, then climb direct up the leaning wall on incuts. The start in isolation is a good V4 boulder problem.

Very hard for the grade- there are 7a's in the quarry that seem easier. Greasy conditions make the first move and last clip quite entertaining.

maybe hard 6c but its all jugs despite the angle

I did this route again recently and not only did I find a much easier method through the crux, but also the conditions made every hold feel bigger! Perhaps only top end 6c after all.

great problem to start after that its just a stamina test, good holds great route.

Superb. Good holds and nice moves all the way. Bit distant between the 2nd and 3rd clip though. If you fell clipping the 3rd clip, you'd come too close for comfort to the ground. Extra bolt wouldn't go amiss. Other than that, just good pumpy fun.
