The right-hand side of the wall is strenuous, sustained and high in the grade. Climb a scoop to the bulges and power diagonally right over these to a deep crack. More forceful climbing leads rapidly to easy ground. Left-hand finish, E3 6a.

Soft touch E2 5b, big jugs and easy climbing.Excellent climb, and a contrast to the other staden routes

Tricky 5b move lower down then a bit goey up the polished crack at the top but agree low grade E2 5b

The E3 6a variation - moving left at half height and fiishing direct (right of Cathy's..)- is worth a mention. A bit dirty at present, but quality climbing.

Agree with the low grade E2 5B comments. It is possible to rest after all the hard moves and the protection is bombproof.

Definitive E1 5b, or have I lost weight?

Definitely not E2 - much easier than Charas, big jugs on the steep bit.

No 5c moves, hard E1 (if you take all the rests and use your loaf) or easy E2. Lovely route.
