This is pitch one, which can be climbed on its own, or as the first of 2 pitches. If doing the latter, use LPL. Excellent route, with a power-crux at the start and technical crux at the top. In between is varied climbing - there are move sequences on small crimps, and a overhanging, bouldery section.

Descent Options:

Off the anchors at the top of this (first) pitch, lower of or rappel (a 60m rope is barely long enough).

5 out of 5 stars A most excellent route

Finally bagged the redpoint today. This is a really great 12b - perhaps one of the best routes of its grade at the Quarry.
