[Gaz on Short Circuit (V2), 2 kb]16m. The centre of the wall is tricky (V2) to start and bold to finish. From the ledges, finish up Josephine Direct. © ROCKFAX
The boulder problem wall and much bolder rib above. The lower crux is fine climbing and although there is a decent offset nut it won't help much on the mantle to gain Josephine Direct.

Took me several attempts to get the boulder problem at the start. Rested for a bit then got a clean run. Brilliant route.
lrandall - Lead RP - 07/Nov/09 with Dan telescope man

Upper moves are no harder than the start but I don't like the idea of trusting the single small wire.

Hard f*cking work trying to make the first moves. Took a dozen or so attempts. Very impressed with Matteusz for leading it. Bold as hell.
