Dan_Carroll - Lead RP - 25/Mar/12 with Mateusz

"Oh so that undercut's still here. I never used it before, thought it was a bit shonky, but I guess if it's still here it can't be that bad." Cue large fall. You might find it if you search the bushes.

Damn Damn. Damn. Forgot sequence as missed a small crimp next to the good jug before the cross over, and by the time I was trying it properly I was just pinging off from grease.
Paz - Lead dog - 28/Jun/09 with MT

Had to come back after previously falling from the last move. Great conditions this evening.

Tried dynoing direct bout 4 times, and realised I could do the cross over without much difficulty all too late.
Paz - Lead dog - 25/Sep/08 with MT

Got it first go after failing to onsight about 3 months ago. Had a couple of unsuccessful goes at working the crux that day before lowering. Looks like someone has been working the route recently, all the key holds were chalked and ticked making it easier for me this time.
gejones - Lead RP - 13/Sep/08 with Sean

This route is brilliant! One of the best I've done. Feels wrong only getting 7a+ for this; it's as hard as all of the 7b+'s I've done. It can be made a little easier by going right to the chunk out of the arete, but the move you miss out is hard and for me is definitely off route. Well recommended.
