Sustained and technical climbing with a great finish around the top roof. The lower wall has one hideous move on it using a nasty shallow mono.

one hard move on lower wall, then an excellent finish, retro bolt still in and should stay in as character of route has not changed.

Many bolts have been bashed over on this route and ajacent ones by MR Grive.

If Seb has done this then he is a very sad little man. What a hypocrite! I'm sure these bolts will be replaced very soon. And quite right too!

The smashed bolts have been removed and the lower retrobolt is still in - it looks nice and tidy lets leave it that way. Top move is only a slap for the weak! From a good left-hand-hold reach round the lip to either a juggy flatty just above the lip or a juggy pocket up and right of this.

Big thanks to Martin for glueing on the hold i broke. A route thats effectively 7B, except for one very hard move on the lower wall, followed by a thoroughly enjoyable roof to finish through. Still 7C, and what a great position.

Crux hold glued back on again as of today. Sorry about the delay.
