Did the hard moves in first half. Melting snow onto 2/3 height ledge preventing top out

Tricky, took a few goes to get to the side pulls then a couple more to man-up and get to the ledge. Had to wait out some drizzle too. Great little problem and nicely spicy on your own.

Good technical moves at the bottom but the top section is harrowing with a less than friendly sloping ledge and a really big desperate reach to the top. The ground looked very far away.

EH UP! A real gem of a climb. Tricky, spicy and great movement. A new favourite!

Had to boulder the start a bit but did it ground-up. Probably shouldn't have taken the rack with me in hindsight! ;o)
