Nice climb. The bold upper slab is harder than it looks and a bit of a test of nerve. It was certainly nice to get a hand on that chicken head near the top on the end of a big run out. I think the sustained 4a moves combined with the almost complete lack of protection surely make this one worthy of a Hard Severe grade.

Climbing is easy, gear is the problem. Nice route to test your mind, confidence, concentration, enjoyed it!

Top section very runout, hence the p3, top move is tough if crack is avoided.
