Second clean up to the roof. Pulled up by any means through roof. Getting late, so abbed off before last pitch.

MEGA ROUTE! Lead the immaculate first pitch, meaty over the roof! And then Cailean crushed the crux on the groove pitch with some gutteral grunts that would have been heard at Costa, before slipping off in the easier top groove, and then I came off at the crux, both topped out with an arm-bursting pump, and then an awesome counterbalance abseil down, such a great adventure, pretty unique in this country.
Mike Goldthorp - AltLd dog - 13/May/13 with Cailean Harker

1st Pitch 1st Red point. Improbable moves can wait to do the top pitch.
