Fluffed a clip first time round, then nearly got blown off on the redpoint! Not particularly pleasant climbing I didn't think. Preferred Sacred Angel.
AlexD - Lead RP - 20/Oct/14 with Marti

Excellent climbing. Two tricky sections, with the second being right at the top!

Blew it trying to clip the 4th from the wrong place then out of time. Next time fo sho. Preferred it to Sacred Angel.

1st redpoint try after nearly getting it on the flash attempt. More sustained and better than the other 7a to the left. Great route! No way it's only 15m long, it must be about 20m.

I didn't think this was as good as Sacred Angel, lacked a strong line near the top.
