Couldn't reach the hold after the start move. Left many unsuccessful tries later with several split tips and a bleeding shin.

Almost flashed but it was pitch black and I missed the pebble for the foot. Took 5 or 6 more goes to get it then topped out by head torch light.

Can just about touch the crucial hold; just a little bit more oomph or skill or something required.

first go when I returned once the temperature dropped and friction had improved but didn't expect to get it. Useful beta on using a small crimp after getting the good hold saved matching and was probably an easier/only sequence anyway.

This is way over graded - its Font 6a 6a+ at a push.

alaan 25/Nov/07 Sent x
Chad123 24/Nov/07 Sent x

Agree it's a bit overgraded, does depend on your ability with knee bars and a long reach helps. Sweet moves though and not all over at the traverse line!
