Have climbed (led) this a couple of times before a long time ago (~20 years!). Seconded it in June and thought it was fine. So led it and it was OK but is quite sustained apart from the half way ledge.

Too long summoning the balls to make the move over the first bulge. Got pumped and had to rest. Was fine after that.

Awesome route! My first E1. Steep and technical climbing to a halfway ledge. Gradual steep climbing to finish. Well protected.
