Led first pitch, Dave did the second. Good route.
MTL - AltLd O/S - 25/May/15 with Dangerous Dave
Nice climbing, top pitch pretty strenuous
Elsier - 2nd - 10/May/15 with Adrian
Exceptionally high quality route! To my surprise the first pitch was much more demanding on the forearms than expected. If the route line is followed as shown in the guidebook this section is mostly climbing on shallow but positive pockets - requires warm fingers.
Second pitch (crux) seemed way less pumpy and what I would call easy climbing on massive holds and full of pro. For the panicky people this section can easily be laced all the way up providing excellent protection, though as it is slightly overhanging you may want to think about efficient climbing instead of zipping up the line.

Think i could do it fresh?!

Tried to lead first pitch and failed, backed off second pitch and got top rope from Nathan. Went back and worked first pitch, Nathan got it in the end and I followed. Second pitch easier, strenuous but I could have lead it. First pitch has no gear after first horizontal break (unless you place a runner in Birdlime Crack) and feels thin after that, even topping out is on slopey holds.
