A bit of an one move wonder, the crux was nice but the the bottom section was not as interesting as Barney Rubble, IMHO. There was a broken hold just below the roof but it didn't seem to make much of a difference.

Good, but slightly unbalanced route as the crux is much harder than anything else on the route and makes it more like E1 as per BMC guide. Small broken hold under the roof makes no difference.

ushi - Lead - 27/May/12 with Ramsey

Seems to be a hold broken off just below the last roof so finnished up Barney Rubble. Sustained and pumpy but great climbing.

Fell off the top move. Big pull over a lip onto slopers. I'm short and my feet were off doing to the pull up!! Should have thrown my foot up to the right.
