Loved this route. Had struggled up Mississippi direct so gave this plenty of respect. Ended up feeling like a climbing guru as I lucked out on working the crux out first time. lucas couldn't second cleanly which massaged my ego even further and then ewan did which caused great hilarity. top notch and top of the grade vs.

Vile. Couldn't comfortably reach the crack or jam sucessfully. Dogged the polished crux, only persevered to clear the gear. Not worth the effort.

pc1983 27/May Lead O/S

Definitely harder lower down. The "pull right to access the hanging crack awkwardly" is just that. Trust a handjam in the crack and it is all fine after that.

Rested on gear at beginning section, took a bit of working out. Did it in the end. But did it a bit differently to how it looks like it should be done...missed out the jamming crack on the crux by bridging and using a small edge for left hand.

Very committing move into the layback, and hard work pulling on the jams. Though it was really hard.
