Finished direct through the capping bulge (at Mark's suggestion). Makes a more satisfactory line to finish, and allows for a much better belay position directly above the crux wall.

Take small nuts to protect the lower wall, which I think contains the more serious climbing. The upper wall is big moves but not hard, and the gear is better. A great climb and not as soft as I was led to believe!

An amazing route with character. First half, steep up to the break, with an awkward crux that is all about foot position. I fell off at this point, then tried again and found the foothold that gave me the height to get both hands in the crack. Once at the break, the second half features a smooth wall with incredible deep and sharp pockets. The first one was a bit of a stretch but the route opened up nicely after that. Definitely one to return and lead.
