1 Attempt. Thought it was too rubish to bother with the RP.

Rubbish. Couple on false starts then onsight to top. The sharp hold mentioned in guide is gone. Bit of improv needed at top.

easy...once you're off the floor
tskelhon - Lead RP - 21/May/10 with John_Warner

Was good to come back and do this the 'proper' way. Under-rated climbing, it's a very good route. Sticking direct / right of the 4th bolt feels contrived at first but makes perfect sense once the sequence is sorted. Feels like soft 7a+... if your fingers are strong! From the 'duo' (with the left hand) you can head right up hidden finger flakes to the roof. They're there if you feel around.

Used a duo by the 4th bolt to go direct ish, and avoided a big hold on the 6c. You can use the other hand in this (duo, and a mono too) but then coulnd't see how you got up inot the roof. Felt like easy 7a+
Paz - Lead β - 13/Feb/08 with MT

2nd Attempt, Went left at 4th Bolt.
