"Lead" but only found three worthwhile gear placements in the 46m of climbing.. awesome route though.. quite sustained
rustaldo - Lead O/S - 29/May/11 with Olly

ollyhorst - 2nd O/S - 28/May/11 with mat rust

HVS 4b? Top route regardless, could only be improved by difficulty being maintained after the crux. Great way to exit California.

Nice...pretty sure I was still drunk from the night before which didn't help.
farmus21 - Solo - 07/Mar/10 with Rich Cannell

Really glad I did this, warmed up by soloing solistce and equonix before hand. Not that hard, thinking back I was so needlessly nervous.

Third climb on slate. Nice climb with a simple but comitting crux made up of quality moves. Great exposure once height has been gained!
Fire Marshall - Solo O/S - 22/Jun/08 with Cragrat Rich

Unnecessary nervousness distilled into mild fear! Excellent climb.

Pretty much a solo. More like HVS as there are no moves harder than 4c on the route.
