Found the temptation to rest on a bolt too great to resist at the crux. Darn it! Reachy in places for the short but lovely steep, technical route. Comedy rope twist added to the fun.

Such a good route, felt brilliant to lead it. Fell off on second 3 years previous. Lovely sequence at the crux. Wet weather seems to have taken its toll, breaks were filthy. E (no A).

Really psyched to get this On-Sight! Long routes I thought I'd have problems with but it didn't feel to bad! The crux is awesome and very technical and the finale is on some great strangely formed rock! Brilliant! We did it with a 60m rope tie the belayer in and you can reach good ledges to down climb. **
