[Trying to fight and calm down at the same time., 3 kb]Techincal, sustained climbing up a central crack to an obvious 'post-box' slot before stepping right to sloping holds on the arete (crux) making bold moves up this to a large spike, finish up and right more easily from this. Savour every move!

James lead to just past the crux then came down. Pulled the ropes, I lead up with gear in, rested before the bold upper section and then finished it off. A Pink point dog I think...

Really good climb - the "slopers" didn't seem too slopey which was a relief, quite exciting all the same.

Dogged first on TR and glad i didnt try leading as it felt pretty ballsy! Clean on 2nd attempt. Beautiful climbing all the way. Must try it on lead next time.

Really sweet climbing that unlocks itself as you progress. Hugged the spike like it was my best friend ;)
Dr Toph - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/10 with Jason, Ed

Tophs on-sight, superb lead, amazing to see. seconded to the post box then skewed left to top out. A lead in this calibre is a long way off for me.Hats off Toph.
