Climb the right-hand crack of an inverted Y to the junction and continue direct more easily. One of the best routes hereabouts although the upper section can be dusty. The bouldery Direct Start is 5c.

Upper section a bit dusty, at least when I've been on it. Well protected.

The bouldery direct start is good at 5c.

The first half/two thirds is superb. the last few feet spoil it a bit because of the dust that washes down from above. Worthwhile all the same. The crux is low down so get your gear in early.

I think I will agree with all the votes, fair at VS 4c, safe but stiff moves early on. Nice enough.

Low crux and bomber gear, yep had a climber fall on me from this :S

Hard start for the grade, pleasant VS thereafter. The top is a disgrace - clearly overused by groups whose ropes have cut into the earth. All the loose stuff needs shovelling off (not while I'm at the bottom, mind)

More like 5a at the start

Bit stiff to start but its all there if you look. Pleasant route although very muddy at the top at the moment, could do with a stiff brush.

Top cleaned off early 2010.
