Great fun on perfect yellow hands! Waited a long time for another party to finish but it was worth it, particularly after completely failing on Coyne Crack. This was possibly the most fun route I did at the Creek, the right combination of being fairly straightforward overall with just a couple of tricky pulls and the pure joy of perfect hand jams. It really lifted my spirits after Coyne Crack earlier that day and the Dentist's Chair the day before and I decided that I should stick it out at the Creek after all! Ran it out a bit with 8 yellow cams but that still left the crux well protected. Only really one or two hard pulls on the overhanging section and the rest straightforward so only felt E1 but that's because it was the perfect size for me!
