Made a complete fist of it, spent so much time getting unnecessary extra gear in the crux that I was pumped, as well as filling the best handholds with gear. So rested and ended up semi-aiding it. :-(

Nice route. Surprisingly awkward negotiating the overhang into the crack but good fist jams await.
mattwilk - 2nd O/S - 16/Jul/13 with Mark

Good solid hands, great crux move. Easier if your lead climber doesn't put a bloody hex in the way though.
