Good fun and almost a sport route at about 6b if you clip gear on the previous route. Climb the groove past some threadable pockets and the remains of the old pint-pot handle hold, to blanker rock. Press on up this to join The Spider. Finish up this or lower off.

It used to be virtually a clip up...

You just need 6 quickdraws for this, the threads seem to have been recently replaced, but hard to get to the foot of the climb.

Effectively a clip up, and a really good route. The pint pot handle IS still there! I don't know where they got the idea it had gone from?

Where's the French grade option? F6b+, I reckon - features some pretty steep and stiff pulls on the pockets, and fairly sustained for it's height. Worth 2 stars as everyone seems to think.

To make it 6b+ I suggest you would need to clip the thread to the left after the jug handle, which is actually on the E1.
