The shallow scoop and groove just before the angle.


My first trad lead. Not very demanding, which I guess is ideal for first lead.Anyway at least it has a comment now!

Only Moderate, but a bit short on gear.

gear? marginal nut popped out as I put my hand on a wet slimey hold, not much fun!

Easy climbing, but tad scary if this is your first lead or its about your grade, smearing up the top scoop could scare the first time grit climber.

A good beginners route.

Nice little route - shame the upper slab is so short.
Agree that the gear is a bit thin and might be a bit unnerving for someone new to leading.

A fun route but I agree with the comments on lack of gear. not too exposed though.
