Fell trying to clip bolt 3 - I'm too short to reach it. Used clip stick to clip bolt 3, did all moves clean. Nice and not pumpy.
Fiona Reid - Lead dog - 18/Sep/13 with Mike

Really cool climb . Watch out for the loose rock just above the lower off

Nice technical moves between good rests, and generously bolted. Mostly clean and should improved with further traffic.

Well bolted arete climbing. Good holds but footwork on small holds required. Buddy pulled off the wobbly spike at the end of the route and its now a good crimp.
