A fine route with some challenging moves on continuously poor footholds. Move up with difficulty to a reasonable crimp. Energy sapping moves on side-pulls gain the base of the bulge and better handholds. Pull strenuously up the vague groove to a tenuous rockover, after which the difficulty eases.

Hard 8a, wouldn't be 8a+ in the peak or yorkshire. Great route though.

Not sure if it is 8a+ maybe just hard 8a but very good

Felt harder than other 8a's i've been on - but felt great on the redpoint - quality all the way, beautiful!

The lower off has been moved and replaced to under the roof, due to a very worrying amount of loose rock at the top of the route
