Ben lead the first pitch and then the 5a finger traverse as the third pitch. I lead the second pitch - a very sustained, interesting and enjoyable pitch (ran out of quickdraws so had to run out the final crack a bit!). A fantastic route and very good value for the grade!

Brilliant, varied, 2nd pitch that seems to go on forever! One or two hard moves getting established in the groove, then pretty steady all the way. Another steaming hot day during current heatwave - at least this was in the shade until early evening.
