Borrowed 2 cam 5s and a cam 6 of some dope-smoking Swiss guys on the campsite. Good outing!
morganator - Lead O/S - 01/Jul/14 with Misha Gopaul

Just P1 this time, for the warm up. Be gentle with the huge spike/flake R of the belay - it moves alarmingly!

TomPR - Jul/08

Queit a run out on pitch 2 when you don't have big camelots with you. Pitch 5 was also pretty desperate.
