I think 1 star is harsh for this - lovely crux, takes a bit of thought and effort, great gear but still got me thinking... there are a couple of bomber jams on the crux which will sort the trad from the sport.

Amazing little climb... like most of the routs pretty much boulder problem with gear
TM_Horton - Lead O/S - 11/May/11 with ash

Made an absolute hash of this one, beautiful route...just didn't have my head in enough to go for the layback off the flake and ended up trying to do some strange jamming/bridging/udging up and mostly just got pumped out and failed. Fell on a jam =( Bad times.
