[The Luna Bong Ab.  Bongkers., 2 kb]6 pitches. 1) 5, 2) 5+, 3) 6a+, 4) 6a, 5) 5+, 6) 6c. Heading back up the line of the abseil gives fine and butch climbing up a powerful groove. There are only a couple of hard moves near the top, and these can be bypassed by the criminally tall, or by leaping for the tree. From the base of the abseils a direct start is also possible up the wide crack at 6b. © ROCKFAX

Only had a set of nuts to compliment the bolts, some medium size cams would have been nice to have as well. Felt well worth E3 like this.

what an epic! started at 3pmish, topped out at 4am. needless to say -alot of faff. lead the entire route, got dark as Olly topped out the first pitch (resorted to massive pitches and did it in 4). not a nice place to be in the dark. uncomfortably anxious the entire time. scorpions+bats came out to play too. never been so relieved to top out. aided almost the entire line - circumstantial onsight!
