What a route! Absolutely class crack climbing. Tough but well protected. Got it clean on my 3rd attempt. Well chuffed as I've not done too many hard finger cracks!

Arrived at the top after 3 rests on the rope. Led on site 1985. Had fun both times.

Two points of resting, but ultimately did all the moves. A brutal climb, and a bit disappointing...definitely not a 3-star route.

Very nice route, can't remember any of the moves from last time, so could almost have called it an onsite. But alas no.

Glad to get this one, been on the hit list for a while. Plenty of thought-provoking moves...

The direct start is 6b and nicely technical, but the finish is scary!
