In drizzle the first pitch was hell. Muddy, slippery and uninspiring. The second, however has lovely moves on solid rock, can be runout, but its all there.

Awesome initial crux which leads to overhang then easy climbing. She steepens and runs out on rattly gear at the top. Climbing gets airy with some big moves on sketchy concretions to finish.

Used this to get out instead of going back up the easy way. It was a ramble with loose rock. Simul climbed, felt like a sketch solo.

HS 4b VS 4b Zelda

"Bold and sustained" the guide book said. It was not lying! A couple of the moves seem more difficult than they are but good holds do materialize.

The climb is somewhat enhanced by the Peregrine falcons swooping noisily about. On this particular ascent they kindly left a dead mouse close to the end of the first pitch.
