Hadn't intended to do the direct finish but didn't spot the traverse off. Brill!

Better than the Left Wall finish. Incredible climb.

fluffed the last move, disco legged off the foothold. I am never going to get over the frustration, falling off the warm-up

Found out I had (unintentionally) done the direct finish when I got back to the ledge! Maybe should read the description next time! Brilliant pitch, with climbing getting more difficult the higher you get!

Wow, forgotten how good LW is.....

Probably not harder than the low crux of Left Wall, for the tall

Never been up the direct finish. Not really much worse than the main crack. Perhaps better than the original.

I felt quite rusty, particularly my head was awful, but I was pleased to have managed to flash it. It was not easy but never desperate. Superb route! I did not mean to do this direct finish, but just ended up. Definitely this is the more natural line than the original!

really great climbing! i was plannin on just doing left wall but saw the direct finish an thought it looked like better climbing, than escaping off left on the jugs. so thought what the hell and went 4 it.

took a lob from two metres below the top on the direct finish ... v pumped and fluffed the move. got the move second go. fantastic climb! excellent gear all the way up. bring lots of small wires

finish of True Grip - adds another 5b move onto the top of Left Wall (maybe E3 5c if you're short)
