Amazing route, one of the best of its grade anywhere! Sustained, interesting, never too desperate but no easy climbing either and it's not all over when you hit the top crack.

Pretty much the hardest thing I've led to date. Exhausting and never ending. Even the top moves are no pushover. Brilliant fun.
Jimbo C - Lead - 13/Sep/12 with Chris, Pete
Favourite route recently. Surprising moves at this grade, a thanks god pocket in just the right place, jamming, thin slab moves, great gear...it's got it all!
julesmckim - Lead - 09/Sep/12 with Mickie Streule
Best route of its' grade on grit? Superb climbing throughout but especially the first half: surprising moves at this grade...just love the move right at the top of the jamming crack...and finding the "thank God" finger pocket

1 rest, just before flake. Should have grabbed flake above, but instead made it hard for myself by trying a stupidly long reach for a sloping sidepull! Brilliant route, and glad to finish it, after baling off it on a previous occasion.

Rested once at the horizontal crack. Still amazed I got that far without falling off! Found the top (VS) section almost as tough - think I was just exhausted by that point! Amazing route but so sustained! ****

Admittedly I'm not great at jamming, but how can this be HVS? Ok, it's well protected, but also very sustained and pumpy, unless you're a grit guru. Great route though. Mary and Dave Birkett happened to do it after us and made it look ever so easy...
