12m. A superbly positioned climb taking the line of least resistance up the wall, the start can feel committing but the protection higher up is superb. Start up the short crack to reach a line of good but slightly rickety holds, move left then rock up with conviction to stand on a good ledge. Move right to a thin crack and follow this to a solid PR make a long pull past this, crux, to reach the top.

Was I having a bad day, or is the move past the peg WAY harder than anything else on the route?

Very nice route with pleasant juggy climbing in a fine situation and a good finish. Good holds, good gear, good rests and only one tricky move make this a steady E1.

Fabulous climb. Very steady until a delicate sequence past the peg - yes, way harder than the rest of the route.

steady e1 i don't think so. the bottom really did feel exposed and the move by the peg very tricky. e2 5c all the way.

Going past the peg is harder than the rest of the route because it's the crux! E2 not E1.
C.E. Moreton - 03/Apr/07

E2 for me, but not 3 stars due to the lack of consistency
