Start is fairly tricky, but once you get to the first finger jam the rest is steady with good gear. I would like to lead it next year.

Thin start, then just thin on the feet. Got pretty pumped as a result came close to not cleaning it.
monsteratt - 2nd O/S - 19/May/13 with Andy C

Cool route. Hard start and sustained until kitten claws. Pumpy on the feet, had to hang on crimps to give them a rest.

felt a lot easier than kitten claws for the grade - bomber gear as well. not too pumpy either surprisingly.
