Lead clean on sight. Lovely exposed arÍte, quite balancy and bold. Surmounting the final block was a special moment. Finished Easily up left. Deserves stars Ė just a shame itís over too soon.

The guide book says 'Be warned, the top block moves'; what it should say is 'Be warned, the whole route moves'. The block referred to in the guide moves when you have all hands and feet on it...very unnerving, but gets a good laugh from your climbing partners ;)
