Removed a very loose pinch block off on face just up right of roof.
Amy UT - Lead RP - 15/Sep/14 with Emily Coats

Simply ridiculous bold spacing, a fall while attempting to clip the bold above the roof could result in a near ground fall, why? To be honest a lot of the bold spacing is dangerous, not what sport climbing should be about

Took a massive whipper trying to clip the bolt over the overhang. Badly spaced and no need.

Brilliant route. Move out around the roof is quite scary as you stand to take a substantial fall due to the bolt spacing.

Backed off on lead attempt at the roof which is really intimidating for a 6a. As with most routes here the bolts are pretty far apart. Went up on 2nd and dogged a little as I made hard work of the roof.
