First ever sport lead, incredibly polished but an awesome climb. Clips drift just far enough apart near the top to give you a good exposed feeling. Excellent ledge for the finish

Can you have a clean ascent of this route ? Filthy . Being new to sport climbing was a bit of a wake up call . Seemed pretty bold in places , very long ,with a few sections of good climbing . Quite relieved to clip the chains .

None of the moves are taxing, but they do take a lot of thought to puzzle out and find the right way to do them. A good learning experience! If you hit the top and you know your rope will be short you can also downclimb and traverse right to a neighbouring lower-off that will happily let you use a 60m rope (or 50m if you swing right at the bottom).
