Excellent, slabby and bold climb from start to finish. Led p3. Even seconding p2 was exciting.

Hidden - Lead - 16/Jul/13

Being rained on at the start of pitch 2 (seconding) made for some undignified rope tugging at the crux. Seemed pretty technical with not that much gear...happy to second.

Great climb, all three pitches are bold HVS. Take lots of small cams and some micro wires.
