amazing, last route of the day. interesting but never too difficult climbing all the way. fiddly & spaced gear that only ever looks "hmmmm, maybe" really accentuate the climbing.

glad i top roped it as i fell from the crux on first attempt, pumpy and hard to onsight crux sequence, two of the flakes in the lower section have lost a piece, and are flexing when pulling on them, dangerous solo for sure.

Happy with this lead, nice route.
domskezz - Lead O/S - Jul/11 with Tim Newton

The moves were all 5b, the main difficulty was having the strength left to make the crux after placing the small fiddly gear. No real rest until you are through the crux so it commits you to the climb and gets the E2 for that reason.

Crux was wet. Very nice little climb

Not sure if this was the line, going more on the number of stars than the grade - no guidebook.
