Woo, hooo - my first 6a+ on lead. I did cheat slightly by hauling myself up on a quickdraw towards the end. Greta bridging but takes a bit of confidence to move past the clip...

Has anyone else spotted the killer block poised above this route? It appears to be held in place only by a small and unhealthy-looking tree root/branch!

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.
