A superb route with a crux high on the wall. Easier than it appears. Climb the face right of the corner, then pull out onto the slab, and climb up to the break. Power through the bulge (the best hold has gone) then traverse up right to a lower-off.

The upper bulge is a lot easier than it looks from below

don't take your chalk, when you need it there's bucketloads already on the holds just before the bulge

The upper bulge is alot harder than I expected, due to everyone saying how easy it is!

mostly jug puling with a very good move left to leave the first overhang. there is a monster jug up and left on the crux that i think would be easy to miss..

it gets 3 stars in the guide, the buldge is alot easier than it looks, wasnt going to mention the pocket, but too late. great route not even very hard for 6a i think. dont know why it got bolted cos could be lead well with lots of gear.

Wonderful route, perfect for an evening cruise!

Fantastic route for a summers evening.
Varied climbing on lovely natural features!
Quite exposed and committing crux

Agree with James Turnbull could be led on Trad gear, a shame its been bolted as would make a very nice HVS/E1 with a nice bold start and finish but well protected crux. I placed a cpl of bits of pro anyway cuz a cpl of the bolts look crap!

Not as wonderful as I expected from a starred climb.
Just OK really.
The HVS next to it has better climbing (although more wandering).

I pulled a massive chunk off. i think it was most of the big bulge, whilst i was standing on the big hidden hold. Sorry. that route has changed a lot now. probably the grade too. I wouldnt climb it again anytime soon. but i was enjoying it before.

Did it today, superb little route. No sign of any loose rock Hannah, looks like it's settled down.
