The lines get progressively harder as you move from left to right. Pretty fun up the middle, V2/3. Right face could be V5.

The Lip Traverse problem (V3) begins on a finger bucket just right of the frame. There's another problem below the lefthand roof.

for the record, the fixed draw and the traversing nature of the route make it hard not to backclip this bolt. You have to twist the rope 1.5 times. I've led the route twice and made the same mistake both times. Barely matters because you're headed straight out right anyways.

3 out of 5 stars Nice shot of the meat of the route. The crux as I recall is the following move, a long reach to a gaston on the flake. Fun

5 out of 5 stars Yeah, this was the only climb I had ever heard of before moving over here. Overclimbed, but not worn, I'd say. Thanks for the comments, see more of the route at http://mountainproject.com/v/international/united_kingdom/england/106092352 (no offense rc.com)

Which hold? the low jug or the high knob? Neither?

5 out of 5 stars Good question, should have skipped most of the nuts/ draws. Mostly cams on this one. The anchor took a lot of big gear, though, so I'm glad I brought it.

4 out of 5 stars Nice angle. Sweet, Jeff!

3 out of 5 stars That's actually quite inspiring. Like a temple.

5 out of 5 stars Not the greatest adjective, I'll admit. The climb is busy, with lines/large groups at the bottom and a lot of people trying it just for the hell of it. Doesn't detract too much, I think.

Sweet 'stache and cool setting.

5 out of 5 stars Second sungam, the only improvement would be ditching the gear. Great photo, really makes me want to go.

Great photo. Cool climb and colors. Looks chossy, but if you cleaned it, you wouldn't get photos like this...

4 out of 5 stars Love the slabs. No pro between the anchors!

5 out of 5 stars eh, I feel like it's old skool 5.9+. The Brits love debating whether it's HVS or E1, but since more sources say E1 I'll stick with that. It's definitely easier than it looks.

5 out of 5 stars whoa. Awesome!

4 out of 5 stars This photo is way cool, but the rope is quite distracting. It's cool how you lose all perspective at the bottom of the frame. Hard to tell how far off the ground you are.

nice, love that move.

This is cool; are those all threads she's clipped?

Cool pic, but could deal with more rock and less sky. Is this in Kalymnos?
