very bold climbing and only found 2 gear placements, the 2nd of which was a size 3 nut which only went in halfway. very nice route but not for the faint hearted.

Had a good look then bottled it and downclimbed a few moves to step right and use the wide crack for my right hand. Did 2nd pitch of Halfway to Kansas to get off the ledge.

One piece of gear in break only, could've done with some micros. Exciting!

Got quite nervous on this. Doesn't look much from the ground, but very committing.

Measured at 12m; doesn't look it , though. E2 5b.
bpmclimb - TR rpt - 06/Apr/11 with Shunt

Seemed easier. Perhaps E2 5b

First ascent, after cleaning and shunting. Particularly thin 5c crux moves to reach the first gear at 7 metres, so I thought E3 was justified. On the other hand it could be E2 5b, and I'm just being a wimp.
