Lead pitches 1,3,4,5. Rest on P3 due to very vegetated and damp groove, otherwise route climbed onsight. There are no pegs of any worth left on this route either on the pitches or belays (except for caveman belay). It is possible to protect it all with natural gear but, I believe, worth e5 for the trouble. Ace route!

By alt lead I do of course mean alternating between leading on aid and seconding on aid while wholly in the grip of The Fear. Not a route for a timid sport climber.
