after jumping on the wrong route and dogging up 'La Ley Innata', and being the end of a full day gave way to poor climbing. would like to repeat.

Too hot to clip.

Rockfax 2008 guide has descriptions of this climb and Double Edge swapped. "Varied climbing right of mid-height tree" applies to this climb. Excellent and sustained climbing. ROUTE IS LONGER THAN 35M so expect to abseil from the second bolt (in situ tat when I was there) on a 70m rope.

Not going direct and not having a big span means you have to run it out... which was a bit traumatising
krasavenko - Lead O/S - 11/Apr/12 with Tom E

Nice line, bolts a bit reachy.
allyrocke - Lead O/S - 11/Apr/12 with Thomas Henderson Schwartz

Avoided going direct in the middle which meant I missed a clip.

I guess I was tired from Double Edge but this felt very hard. I got really pumped about half way and then dogged up a few more clips before calling it a day.

hard start leads to fun long technical sequences.
jacobjlloyd - Lead O/S - 17/Dec/09 with Laura Capelletti, amy horton, Ed Shaw

Brilliant climbing. Necky start, and couple of tricky clips in the middle section (bolts straight up, line goes right, and back left highter up). Top section is lovely romp up huge holds. 40m? rope needed, or have to use situ maillon on 2nd bolt to reach ground. The big clue is the 38m! scratched on rock at bottom!

Took a series of falls between second last and last bolt. Gets a lot harder there when you've had time to get a bit pumped already. I'll come back to the bastard!
