Interesting bridging, hard to reach holds, a bit more difficult than expected, not too sure I would lead it. had to use the crack to the left to start as I could reach the top of the rock above the first bolt

Quite a few very wet holds as height was gained, the close bolting was some comfort. Would feel very soft if dry I suspect.

In the snow! Can't claim on-site as I had to rest at first bolt to dry the lower holds. Lowered off and got it clean. Still a bit damp which made for interesting bridging! Great route.

Yeah .. some cool moves on this. Wish I could have been a little more graceful though .. was using head and right shoulder to bridge some of the way :-) Also managed to dislodge a fist sized rock and a load of dust searching for hand holds in the crack system on the right wall @ the crux.
