Very loose rocks at the final move. Apart from that, nice climb

Great stuff for a sat morn solo run!

Went here on climbfest Sunday, in search of shelter from the wind. (We found it and roasted instead.) The rock is a bit dirty but the crag is certainly worth a visit. The obvious spike on the final move of this route is a bit loose so take care. Worth a star but not more
