Much easier as a second.

Led in one pitch. Probably the nicest climb we did. Worthy of 5a? Perhaps just hard 4c. Majority of top section, including all the flakes and most big blocks, seemed either loose or hollow. Care needed and difficult to place gear because of this. Shame as the moves through the flakes are really nice.

Nice route, tricky to read but good holds when you find them.

Climb in the bag and foolishly got complacent on the top out. Grabbed a loose block and I was off, falling 50 feet and sending Hector 15 feet up.

Solid HVS, we did the right exit which was not too loose, but harder than the rest of the climb! I'd have agreed with 4c except for the last few meters, which were more like 5a

Rested on gear so blown my onsight. Crux isn't on mid section which one would have thought looking at it from below.
