A steep and popular route. Tricky moves to a hanging spike provide the meat of the route.

I climbed this route for the second time recently (after three years since the first) and I was surprised that I had forgotten how good it is. Give it two stars!

Excellent F6c.. Should become a classic.

Hmmm, a nice varied climb. A fingery crux followed by some layback action up to the spike. Then perch on the corner using a small but sufficient foothold before the easy finish. Yeah!

Superb climb. Interesting moves to pass the overlap and gain the good holds up the easy corner to a rest. A considered approach is needed to move around the corner - but the holds are there. 3 stars.

A really good route, but pretty easy for the grade apart from the one section passing the overlap. The moves around the roof feel really quite commiting despite not being that hard.
