Highballed. Good moves all the way. A bit scary - particularly when I had to downclimb a move or two to sort feet high up. Breathing rather heavily by top!

Didn't seem any point in racking up as the gear placement is after the crux!!

Alex Winter 17/Sep/10 Solo O/S

Didn't climb as nicely as I was expecting. 5c move off the ground, wobbly 5a above. Good route.
