This climb is in 91 logbooks, and on 6 wishlists.

It is technical, but is very well protected. It is not sustained, IF you have find good rests (including no-hand rest :-). Felt soft for E3 (more like E2) and for 5c.

Steep and pumpy, would I have made it on-sight on the lead placing gear? Not sure.

Seriously pumpy in the upper crack but the holds keep appearing as long as you keep plugging on. The gear up high was less inspiring then I had hoped, tho the route still felt safe.

Think I just about managed it without resting fuly on rope, although I didn't make the crux first time round and slithered back dowon to the so called 'knee bar rest'
Swotson - 2nd dog - 15/Jul/09 with Tony Madden

Had to sit on the rope to extract a nut that Neil had placed upside down fter it fell out round his feet near the top (rather a scary moment!) Otherwise would have probably got onsight
