βeta: A great route, possibly best done in two pitches if you have an unconfident second. The thing with Modern is it looks deceptively slab like but isn't and never lets up from the off (a part from the wide ledge near the top). Lots of varied climbing thin crack start, jamming, lay-backs and a finally pumpy race for the top.

βeta: Thought I'd warm up on a 'nice easy severe'!!!! This is quite pushy but very good climbing

βeta: Me too I thought It was HS and thought is was hard at that but when I found out it was S I needed a sit down, we did Central on Hen and it was easier than this.

βeta: I agree with jon (even if he is contradicting himself elsewhere: see Thompsons Route 1). Rather ridiculous at severe on both sections.
