Once the most popular route at Horseshoe, up the crack and groove. Showing its age a bit and high(ish) in the grade.

Route is now polished ,soapy and unpleasant in its' lower half.

Thought the lower half was the best part of the route with nice powerful moves. the top is nice, technical and delicate climbing. Felt a bit harder than some of the 6b+'s ive done.

3 star route of the quarry. i think it would scrape in at 6c in many places for the powerful nature of the start, the rest is a path though.

Wasn't actually as polished as I was expecting. Quite a nice start then an easy rest at the middle and a hardish move right near the top. 6b+ is about right i would say.

Requires a determined approach, but not has hard or polished as I expected. 6b+ is spot on.
