stugreen75 - Lead O/S - 22/Aug/11 with Jase

Led P1, and went as far directly up the slab as possible, just to see. Only one bit of gear though, so the superdirect finish will have to wait for another day...;)

Not quite sure of line on first pitch, two variations after first overlap. (did them both!) Second pitch is fairly bold but on big holds... Route is good but has the eliminate feel to it..

The slab pitch is lovely, the beginning of the second pitch is well awkward...
Dr Toph - Lead O/S - 2008 with Ally Hill

No gear on demanding second pitch. Fell off on first part but got it second time.

Did the direct finish in the late 90's I think, named it 'Slipper Starter' submitted it through Climber mag etc. Graded at E2 5c one piece of gear just below the hanging slab and a nasty side pull on the left. 2 moves to reach the top but bold moves!!!! enjoy!!!
