This climb is in 5 logbooks, and on no wishlists.
Psyched to do this! Hardest grade ive climbed and a second ascent so cant complain. Ground up highball! Psyched to see what else ill get ticked this season. All respect for Morgan doing the first ascent in trad style, that would be f-ing scary. Finally, if anyone else goes for highball, loads of pad and carefull placement needed!!

Its now a highball!! :D Amazing to see Sam get the second ascent. Never been that scared spotting someone. maybe call it V7 highball? have to see what future ascents think.. friction was amazing today. never felt that easy.

Trying ground up with pads, almost broke my ankle. Bloody scary route, be back with more pads.

Managed to do all the moves, and almost linked it at least 4 times(lost too much skin for many more goes). Found the lower crux a lot harder than the 2nd Watched two other people manage the lower crux without the heelhook.

A massive project for me!! took me a few months of working and working, only ever linked it 3 times on a top rope, but felt so strong today i had to lead it felt so good! amazing to get this done, phyced out of my head at the moment! thanks to matt for belaying me and will and chirs for phyceing me up!
The Grade, harder than most E6s Ive been on, its easy to mess up, very thin, very run out, the ground fall is savable if you have usain bolt belaying! when i lower off the crux on a top rope with a tightish lead line attached i landed a foot off the floor. :S
On a top rope its about Fr7bish and i guess could be highballed at V6ish, hope this helps any one who wants to give it ago! goodluck, let me know if you do it! http://vimeo.com/21319909
