Epic seven hour ascent as seconds not familiar with multipitch slab climbing. Best climbing is on the final two pitches. Manages to feel a little run out in places.

A wonderful route that I really enjoyed. Michelle led the first pitch up the start of Xena. I led the reaminder. Pitch 2 takes a diagonal traverse with 3 bolts to reduce the run out somewhat. The crux is the traverse at the start of the 3rd pitch that leads to an easier crack. The 4th pitch winds along a ledge and then back up a curving crack. Had a good head day so the run out and exposure were not a problem.

This is an excellent climb but spoiled a bit by the crux pitch which is a walk and a simple scramble sandwiching a short very hard crux (15? 16? - very similar to Brolga). But with the right small cam you can protect (or even aid!) the crux move. There are several bolts (not carrots) on this route including a bolt belay, none of which is strictly necessary in my view.
