lcullum7 - 2nd O/S - 04/Jun/12 with Mike Mason

Very good route. Anna's hardest and steepest trad route to date. Nearly didn't climb it as a bloke who had just climbed it told me it was loose didn't want to get on anything to loose with Anna. Ha ha no loose on it. You can lase it which makes it VS but if you don't want to get pumped run it out makes it feel like HVS

A really nice route up the striking crack, with big holds. The crux is half way up on the overhanging bulge, a little hard topping out, but the holds are there if you look!
