A brutal climb from start to finish. Insecure jams, and desperate bridging. Great gear, but strenuous to place no doubt. Fair play to Luke for a solid lead.

Wow struggled on this found the start quite brutal, although I think I was lacking technique (Chris flew up it). Had several false starts then managed it with two rests. Will have to come back - great line!

Aid practice. Did not finish as I fell and decked (softly and upright) on rope stretch after a cam ripped. Nearly a trip to Treliske.
