Kate Edhouse 27/Aug/14 AltLd O/S

First few moves of the spike feel quite hard for the shorter....and be carfeul on P2 up to the belay below the corner there is a VERY wobbly jug just where you want it.

erbridger 27/Aug/14 AltLd

Lead third pitch. First 2 pitches (ran together) matched Kate's delicate style - trickey to get off the floor and the third, more strenous pitch matched mine. GREAT ROUTE.

A great route but you could make a case for starting up the first pitch of Murray's which would give a more consistent grade. On account of rather tenuous climbing with poor gear the Tiger Traverse might be worth HVS.
