Wow what a route! Its just goes on and on, intense. Done as 1 pitch a la Rockfax, but tempted by E2 as its soo BIG and sustained. Definitely not 5c though and very safe. Got a knee bar in there, ran out of quickdraws, feet were in agony cos of the heat and its not over until its over!

Ending up reversing while mega pumped back down and doing the less exciting HVS finish. I'll be back with some more trust in my gear to go for it..
