Tried to take the traverse high in the break and could not make the good holds. Got low in the break and made the moves up the slab easily. Must try again.

Was too intimidated to lead it but got it clean first go on top rope and felt very comfortable so should come back and lead even though that is kind of cheating.

The first time I reached the poor crimps I was too pumped out to pull up to standing on them, so had to take a fall. A rest at ground level and some smoother moves made sure it went the next time. The hard bits are well protected, as it gets run out, so it eases.

Satisfying moves and a great line. I needed 2 attempts to stretch up and reach the obvious flat hold. The first attempt almost resulted in a fall but I was somehow able to drop back down to the small crimpy intermediate holds. The upper section of the climb steepens and looks quite intimidating but turns out to be reasonable. I was carrying cams only but had underestimated the size of the upper horizontal breaks and so inadvertently generated more excitement than was strictly necessary. One to return to again and again.

found the reach to the poor holds hard. seems like i should have got a jam further out and high stepped to the break my hand was in.

Graeme Hammond 05/Sep/09 Lead O/S

really nice worth 3 stars??, Expected this to feel run out but upon standing up on the crux (felt easy for 5b ) you reach a large ledge, with one easy move to reach more bommer gear, further nice moves lead to the top :D
