My friend pulled a block off this yesterday - approx 30cm^3 in size. On my first attempt I noticed that the foothold on the arete at the crux was moving, but didn't think it'd come away. Well, it did! While I was belaying. Luckily no one got hurt. So that foothold is now gone, but I don't think it makes the route much harder, at least with the beta I used; I sent it after the breakage.jonleighton - Lead RP - 26/Oct/13
Retro flash. Last tried the route in 2004 and failed miserably. The best route of the grade in the area

Being lowered into the stinging nettles at the bottom would have probably enhanced my overall experience of climbing this route.

Awesome route! Fell at the top of the corner, and took a take on the top roof. But after finding the holds, sent it second go. Woop Woop!

really strong line. got it second go- getting pocket out left was the crux for me. left foot on nubin on the arret. nice and juggy at the top- cutting loose is uneccessary but justifyable i think. great fun.
