A good and challenging route with interesting and contrasting climbing. Climb up through the lower bulge to a good hold. Move up with difficulty and balance leftwards to reach undercuts beneath the hanging flake. Pull up to the flake and follow it easily to a final airy pull through the capping roof.

Free at 7c, may be hard for short and tall people. Very good route

Actually it`s maybe 7b+ I can`t tell

Yet another new route from Rob Mirfin called " Statement of Ewes" which starts up Train to Hell then goes right across the bulge, via some tricky moves on small undercuts to join and finish up Cured prob 7c and prob worth a star. 18/09/2005

There is a super direct version up the groove at around 8a but the holds tend to force you to climb up rightwards A good adventure with a lot of good tricky moves/climbing. Could be 7c+ actually ?

Just repeated Statement of Ewes which is a really good link up and probably worth 7c and a couple of stars
