excellent route, all the cams you can carry.
lithos - Lead - 01/Jul/14 with Puma

Superb technical moves lowdown, with a perfect hand jamming crack higher up. Lovely route, I must have a go on lead when I get a little bit better.

Reading other peoples descriptions you would think this route was a VS???!!!! It is graded correctly. Nice moves at the bottom lead to nice hand jamming crack. Lower moves not for the faint hearted although protection is there.....

Green and slimy in places at the bottom but most useful holds OK so worrying but rather than actually harder. However some very slimy bits at the top actually made a difference. Good gear. Did not seem much easier than Tind although Tind was less slippy.

Great climb, probably only HVS though, Led after Jim who stripped the line after his lead.
