Nice climb, great weather. Big step from the block onto the arete on the 2nd pitch.
Radioactiveman - 2nd - 28/May/12 with Ann

Beautiful rock, but quite runout in places especially crux move off the large block, start of pitch 2. Belays also a bit awkward and tricky. Would not recommend it for an inexperienced VDiff leader.
