Felt thinner than it should have. The gear is small, some of its good though. I've never used so many pieces from the 'special small stuff crab' before. Nice

led onsight in a t-shirt in december! great route the hard bit takes loads of tiny wires which are just about worth placing.
Ed morris - Lead O/S - 12/Dec/09 with arthur

Did this 7 years ago on first climbing trip, always wanted to go back. Does take v small gear but its only for confidence. Great moves, soft at grade, E1 5a-ish.
