Not sure what constitutes an on sight in aid climbing, but I didn't take any falls. Used a clip stick all over the second pitch and occasionally on the first. Don't see any other way of doing it, without getting a hammer out. Uncomfortable and adventurous, excellent for exhibitionists.

there's a bolt every couple of metres, sometimes closer together. needed a cam to get to the first bolt, a few moves on in situ pegs with not so good tat on them between the bolts, and used a couple of wires on the exit groove.
