Can't reach the top left ledge for love or money. It's a lost cause for a shortie I reckon!

JLS - TR dog - 12/Jun/13 with Koon M.

In a few goes. Slog to the top. Snow everywhere + drips off the headwall. Holds were in proper bad condition at the start, probably hasn't been climbed in ages. Good climbing.
Kevin Woods - Lead RP - 23/Mar/13 with David Macmorris

Prob some of the worst conditions the route could be in and the headwall drips from snow didn't help either. The route is well balanced and offers good technical moves, good footwork is key. Second last bolt is a complete pain to clip an extension would help. The little sister to POV.

henning82 - Lead RP - 06/Sep/10

Really enjoyed its rather complex sequences. Took me a while to work them out (and some beta for the very last move to the lower off)
johannes - Lead RP - 01/Sep/10

The crux proper is hard but I could figure it out eventually. Will never be able to make the top move though - just too big a reach. :(

dj_brigham05 - Lead rpt - 11/Jun/09 with The Gang

Some nice climbing. Felt hard, partly because it's quite green at the moment. Would benefit from more traffic.
Neil Adams - Lead RP - 02/Jun/09 with Ross B

Messed sequence up at top on the onsight. very annoying
