Juggy for the most part, tricky specific finish. I went up left, then traversed back right on positive slightly crimpy holds, plan ahead as you don't want your hands the wrong way around!

First lead of the day, great route! "Clip-stick onsight" I climbed with a clipstick on my harness and put a draw in the top from the big holds beneath the finishing moves as I knew I wasn't tall enough to put the draws in and really wanted the onsight!

Any difficulty can be bridged away so not pumpy if feet are used cleverly. End is v tricky.

Reaver2k 05/Apr/09 Lead O/S

Got this suprisingly! Shoulders were really tired from caving and the rest of the routes. Powerful jug pulling through roofs, 3rd clip is very awkward. The rest is none too hard, until the finish. I clipped the lower-off from one move lower than katie as she had to put the QD in. Then did the final final move and feet slipped, hanging off hands alone on poor hold, held it though so still clean. Nice, couple of quite run-out bolts on worrying rock.
