Not o/s as Kirill led it first. He kindly left a long extender on the very high first bolt. Rock quality is not the best.

Nice moves, badly bolted. Easy upper half. NOTE The big loose jug below the 1st bolt has gone (Aug 2014) - not much harder.

Very hard start and possibly the first bolt is too high or maybe needs another 1.5 m lower

First bolt is above the crux. Nice moves in lower half but blocky in a detached sense higher up.
harold walmsley - Lead O/S - 15/May/12 with Colin Struthers

The crux is done before the first clip.Needs another bolt.
