This climb is in 90 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

Climbed in 4 pitches on 80m. Led 2/3(ish), going mega off route and turning it into a sketchy but fun gardening project, and the final pitch. Backed off pitch 1 on lead as nails with no cams above 1.5 and little previous crack climbing experience! Awkward more than difficult. Overall awesome route and intro to the valley!

Lead the first (crux) pitch. Wicked and felt quite hard, which is disappointing..

After doing Ejesta we started this at 4.30pm. The car park closed at dusk. It was touch and go but just made it up and down in time, FUN.

Tried to run up with Jon - too much traffic so only made pitch 2. For having had a minor epic on the first pitch the first time around (3 years ago), it's now almost a solo.

First 45m pitch is 'real slick' and awkward... the psychological crux is still that run out 5.5 high up mind
jimorothy - AltLd - 08/Sep/10 with Rachel Crolla

Nails 1st pitch, as sustained as anything i've ever done. Gear good but don't be thinking this will be a walk in the park. The locals told me that the first pitch is 'super solid' and the second agreed!!! The rest is a quality romp on great gear.

Only one hard more (more awkward than hard), halfway up the first pitch. Beyond that, just keep running to the top.

First pitch is crux, and involves almost every climbing style imaginable. Next 5 pitches are a great intro to the valley (hint take 70m rope and link 3 & 4 to limit exposure on hot days)
