I 'led' the first easy pitch. More like solo'ing, there's not really any gear but then again the moves are about 4a/b. Tim got the super awesome and surprisingly well protected main pitch. Great moves and lots of places to fiddle in sideways nuts etc. Once you join the left wall there's plenty more gear too. Some trust in friction is required, great route in a really 'out there' location.

Nick Russell 17/Sep/12 Lead O/S

A fantastic piece of sustained slab climbing. Never too hard technically, but as your gear fades into the distance on the second pitch, there's no denying that it's worth E1. Maybe I just wasn't warmed up, but I didn't find the first pitch much easier than the second (though much better protected)
