In November there was a small patch of land just below the start of this route, large enough for a rope bag & belay. Getting off the ground was a bit tricky as the feet were slick and sloper edges for the initial launch then eased as you progress upward.
The route provided a different feel after the horizontal break midway and required several neat moves.
I liked it, I thought it was fun and right on for the grade. Then again, I was just following. Perhaps a bit heady on the lower part if leading.
Use 2 ropes to rap. You can get down using 1 70m and two raps but getting to the station to the climbers left and under the roof is a bit tricky.

|The climbing is pretty easy on the runout slab. The serious part is reaching the first bolt on the head wall. You have to do some funky mid 5.10 moves with the potential for a swinging 25ft fall onto the slabs below.|

|Slab at the start (pretty easy) is the only runnout section. Above that you get great cams then bolts then gear again. Brilliant face climbing on a steep plated face.|
