Excellent roof climbing up the main line of the roof, which is more of a sprint than a marathon. Scramble up to the ledge then reach out and clip a bolt or two. Take a deep breath and move into upside-down mode. The first and last pulls are the hardest. Said to be low in the grade by muscle-bound gorillas.

Tends to stay quite greasy

Good route, not worth 3 stars though. Basically only one hard move which can be done in a variety of ways. Found it easier than I thought I would, sent it 3rd go, which is saying something cos I'm really not very good at overhangs.

Hey now! That last move on the roof is quite big if you don't fancy the small hold in between to cross through on! Try not to use your left knee when coming over the lip, mine hurts!

Much easier to use the 'small' hold. I lost the flash when trying not to use this hold. Got it second go.
