One-and-a-half stars. Not as Excellent as Ankles Away or Hoodgie. Still worthy.

What's with the bolt just above the horizontal? Not really needed.

Not a bad route, good for a warm up.

Ran into Tim Spalding when we were here in October.

Guidebook has it at 5.7
Fun climbing, although this formation seems to hurt the fingers more than others in the Hills.

Opening moves are the crux, once that first bolt is clipped the rest is cruise.

Crux was reaching the 1st bolt. Easier and less sustained than Ankles Away to the right. (both rated 5.8 here) Fun route!!
