Gets 6a+ in local guide and I think even that is lenient. The tough bit is awkward laybacking towards the top, had one slip which was annoying. Top roped after rope was in place after Cantolandia.

lithos - Lead - 10/Apr/14 with Gav, Pete Bradshaw

Local guidebook said 6a+, which I'd say was fair.

Fantastic route, brilliant jamming crack. Undergraded, no 6a moves but sustained enough to warrant it. Best route of our trip.
