A stunning climb taking on the massive slab.
1) 27m, 4+. Move up to the high first bolt and continue past a steepening to easier ground and a stance with a lower-off.
2) 25m, 5+. Climb up the wall and take the last section past the final two bolts well to their right.


Very easy. did in 1 pitch and the crux is on the 4+ pitch. The whole route should be graded 4.

I didn't find it so easy! First pitch only 4 bolts in 25 meters and could be V+. 6 bolts in the second pitch and could be 6a, even going to the right of the bolts in the crux.

Missed out 2nd from last bolt on second pitch - I onsight 6B. Bolt is badly placed or the grade is too low (I'm 5ft7ins). Lower pitch is 4+, but the bolts don't inspire confidence. Good route but not top 50.

this didn't seem dangerous at all to me as the spaced bolts are on easy ground and the harder moves have bolts exactly where you need them - though the hardest move on the climb is the stretch out left to clip

Grades are right but bolts are quite widely spaced on P1 and the 2nd last bolt on P2 is a long stretch out left.

P1 4+ correct and safe, P2 5+ generous; clipping second last bolt is long reach (5' 10"), but not essential for safety (if you move out right).

I thought my grade was plummeting when I got to the last two bolts, looked about 6b, so mad e a right move that was in keeping with the grade, great rout, did you meet the Dog on the way in (and out).

P1 is very run-out, P2 better bolted. However, the line on P2 provides several options at the top. Staying right is soft touch 5+, but going straight on with a reachy move up and right to an incut jug before stepping back right is probabably 6a/a+, and certainly better climbing.
