There is a a mile between the grade on this pitch and Bird of Fire. Nothing stood out but worthy as a warm up for Bird I guess, although the Dolphin is more interesting. With Alfred from CA.

Surprisingly good route with no stars in the book. Should never be top roped - the gear is great and cleaning it on rap shou;dn't be hard for anyone who has done this before.
