Got shut down big style. I'm going to be back when i've learned how to jam better. Got some nice bruises from this one.

i don't remember much beyond the maddening throb emanating from the lump on my head after having smacked into a sharp rock while attempting to swing jamie across to his gear earlier in the day. i had a go for the sake of it - to no avail. jamie wont let this one lie. we'll be back.

Brilliant, juggy and exposed! Never desperate until you reach the grassy summit pushto find the belay tree long gone, good job I carry tat around eh! The walk in is definitely worth the hype...

Should have done a warmup first - strenuous around the roof!

A scary climb! Access is hard work - 30 min walk in, wade across the river, hack through the stinging nettles, but lovely rock once you get there. Looks very impressive from the tourist path across the river, which is no doubt why we had so many spectators.
An easy start takes you quickly up until you get to some terrifying moves around the arete, but some good friend placements if you can hold on that long! Higher up on the climb has 4-5 pitons and other fixed gear - how safe these are is hard to say, but take lots of large nuts/rocks and mid-large hexes if you have them.
There is a good belay point with fixed gear on the back side of the rock - climb to the top and then scramble right along the top until you see it. Alternatively, don't find the belay, and spend three hours getting climbers, ropes, gear, etc. unstuck from the top! (ahem)
