tskelhon - Lead O/S - 27/Aug/08 with Lauren Foster

Really nice route. The moves are more about strength than technique with big juggy holds letting you really pull and smear and the gear can be placed above your head from a comfortable rest in most cases so it feels really safe. I really got my confidence back from cruising this on lead. Good one for inexperienced leaders.
