Can be led from start to finish with a 70m rope. Make sure you tie a knot in the end of your rope and don't use huge amounts of rope when threading the anchor.

Awkward beginning, some scary moments lower half for a short arse but lovely top. LONG route - take at least 18 draws.

Best face climb I've ever done! Definately deserving of it's top 50 spot, really nice sustained but steady climbing to the top. Individual moves quite easy for 6a+, but fairly sustained. Took 16 draws and had to reverse a couple moves to retrieve a couple.
