It took a while. Heading off up the crux with less than ideal gear, with passing showers meant a little bit of yo-yoing. Took fourth go at crux to move past it (and to work out how to get the RH crimp. Hardest lead 'on-sight' :-)

I had top roped this route about two years ago. There was a stuck nut (about #3 or 4) just under the roof. 13.4.07 Seconded the route on a baking hot day with Adam. There are now 4 pieces of in-situ gear on this 8m route, it almost deserves a sport grade.
