hard crux! got close on the onsight attempt but then took a while to manage the move...will come back and get that move sorted then it should go clean. guidebook said 7b, I've not really got much experience at this grade but it was definitely harder than Decimation!

First time leading attempt on this beast. 2 goes but no joy, kept falling right at the very last move before the ledge after all the hard work to get there.

Tomar - TR - 05/Aug/10 with Ross

So, so close to on-sight. Fell off the last possible move. Skipped 2nd to last bolt. Not 7b, I though it was benchmark 7a+ but might concede that it as "hard 7a+"
Richard Hall - Lead RP - 26/Jul/10 with Anais

Hidden - Lead RP - 16/Jul/10

Hard crux section, took a lot of goes to grab and then hang the big left hold. Few bits of crumbly rock but generally quality route.
