Got pumped and scared near the top and rested. Should get it clean next time if I'm not so wimpy, not to difficult.

Still too hard, must return with better tekkers.

Quite straightforward when you know where all the good holds are, no distinct crux but sustained.

Almost got it in a oner, but fell at the last move. Cracking route though and will be back to bag it once and for all.

rustaldo 01/Jun/14 Lead RP

First RP (sort of). Quite good moves, no real crux but quite full on from 2nd bolt onwards.

Got it! A slight heistation at the crux meant I was too pumped to make the final mantle and took a good fall onto the bolt. After a good rest, set off again and charged through the crux before making the top with relative ease. Great route!
