An absolute classic. Moving from the 'bowling ball' to the sidepull is a joy of movement. Took a good few falls from the crux but it's pretty safe with a few pads and attentive spotters.

Hard. Terrifying up top in the 20+degree heat. Spent about five minutes standing chalking up waiting to man up and pull over the top. Scariest thing I've ever climbed by some margin.
