The original classic is polished now. Very hard if conditions are soapy but at least the bolts are close together.


rebolted and now very friendly

More bolts per meter than any other route on the island that I could see (as opposed to some of the slab routes where there are 4m gaps) - would be a good first F6a lead.
Richard Horn - 11/Oct/04

Overbolted and excellent but to my mind too tricky for a first 6a lead.
Wilko - 21/Oct/04

The crux bulge is probably harder if you try and clip all the bolts. Be bold and you'll quickly be on easy ground.

Slippery and unpleasant - at least when the heat is on!
