climbed this again at the climbfest, really enjoyed the moves, felt more like a 2 star route this time round.

Climbed this today before the rain. We thought it was really good. Great handholds and gear all the way. The top is very loose with no belay anchors apart from the fence posts but that is the same for all the routes in this section. The rock on the climbing is good and solid.

Climbed this route on Saturday, would say HVS 5a is about right, not so sure about the 2 stars though, i thought one might be more appropriate. There is a lot of loose rock on the ledge at the top of the route and i had to use the not very secure posts at the top of the grassy slope for a belay anchor.
