Really good 3d mixed interest through the steepness... And yes trickier than it looks.

Phil's lead. Quite well built up on the top section (seem to recall it was quite thin when I did it in January), with a couple of steep pulls round a small chandelier providing the crux. Agreed it was about IV 4. Climbed in G12s on my old B1s as the B3s were still being resoled.
Misha - 2nd O/S - 05/Dec/10 with Tom, Phil

Fat and fun. Lots of water running off the capping chandalier so it was go go go or drown!Mishas Cobras again - seems like cheating they are so easy to use.

Looks easier that it actually is! Easy start but gets progressively steeper and trickier. Hardly anyone had been up it recently so nice virgin ice.
