Pretty bold start, loose rock on upper half. Not a classic!

Lacks protection on bottom section of the route and its steepness makes it harder to place.

Most of gear placements sounded very hollow although they seemed good enough. The long move is ace and the holds on the upper section are fantastic.

Hard work at VS 4c. Downclimbed back to the starting ledge a couple of times due to being pumped silly. Not a route to go for as a warm up!
