Bouldery initial move, then excellent varied climbing to what feels like quite a wild finish. Turned my whole outlook on Portland around. Great route.

I was all over the place on this. Difficulty after about fifteen feet made me shoot up trad route flake on left then started traversing right and fell. Made it to roof but exhausted and couldn't complete.

Really pissed not to have got this one clean on lead. Fantastic start on beautiful flowstone, but really struggled for the second to last bolt on a pretty tight crimp and eventually backed off. Even on top rope still couldn't clean it. Back next week I guess!
