Hmmmm, may have underestimated this one! Steep, strenuous jamming with no rests may also be my nemesis!!

Well pumped and scared despite taking a rest below the bulge. Brilliant route, reccommend double rack of large cams/hexes/both unless your a lot braver and stronger than me. Horrendous rope drag after bulge due to non extension of rubbish cam placement didnt help.

steep and a little dusty in places, good holds throughout but strenuous. Nest at the very top so traversed right into NW for last few ms.
lithos - Lead O/S - 22/May/10 with julie

Awesome line, steep, well protected and really fun. As always with whitestone, test or pick your holds! Brilliant
