Although I tried it at the end of the day, it felt brutal for an F6a+. Got mad pumped. mix of polish slopers and dirty sharp holds.

Fell at crux, soon as I got left foot in the right place it was slot easier
Cheese Monkey - Lead dog - 05/Jul/11 with Harry

With rope in place after we'd played around on DoA to the left. Looks easier from the ground; probably isn't. Quite a bouldery problem with lots of rockovers - more so than DoA. As long as you're happy to hang around on a hand and a heel it's quite a nice climb, but I suspect it'd seem scarier without the fixed rope. Got to the top and found myself asking, "how the hell did I finish this five minutes ago?" :-) - think the crux is getting to the top from the RHS rather than the left.

Light was fading, awful climb. Holds never felt good enough and always slipping away. Rock over seemed a little desperate if the left foot was to move you would be off.
