Great route with 2 Crux\'s in the space of 5 meters. Rock is solid with added shrubbery to cement the challenge.

Beaut of a route. Rock is a bit hollow in places but its still there today. Top end HS alright! Worthy of a star or two for sure.

Yeah this is a really nice route. I haven't climbed it in a while but I agree with Emma. This route feels bottom end - sold VS compared to some other routes in the Culdaff area. At least 1 star.

Great route! felt difficult. it's very technical for the grade. I would say it could be VS. Felt harder than some VS's i've climbed.

Loved this route! Great for a HS... I went straight upto the jug at the top of the overhang (as in the picture, but straight instead of trending left). Brilliant, steep finish with good gear.
