Solo clean on sight. My longest (16m) and boldest solo to date. A lovely route with thin sequences of moves broken by small rest ledges. The crux sequence (about ¾ of the way up) took a little thought and a cool head. Fab exposure on the finishing pinnacle.

I don't remember climbing it the first time, but apparently I've done it before. Certinally a bit useless on protection, but pleasent easy-moved slabs are always a favourite with me. Treated it as a semi-solo really.
