Was in a rush and Strayed onto the big surr in the middle cause I hadn't looked at topo properly. Got back on track and thought it was a good pitch.

Wicked route, slightly more run-out than the description above suggests. A little bit of suspect rock, but on the hole a great route with brilliant flowing climbing between good rests. Sweet.
