A popular long pitch. Stick to the line of bolts at the start and continue past the first lower-off.

First bolt in a difficult spot to reach and needs a stick clip. Good pitch with one difficult move but solid climbing.Good fun.

Probaby worth 7a+ for the fairy sustained nature of the climbing. 2 star climbing on 1 star rock (to quote a phrase).

Did the fairy bring her wand???

No. She could have done with a bit of glue as it's a bit loose in places, but that should clear up with some traffic.

good route, pretty sustained and the finish feels pumpy. watch out for loose rock, dont belay directly underneath
