CRead 27 Apr Lead dog What a mission! Poor commitment on the blind move over the bulge at 1/3 height resulted in a whip, found the groove above desperate and the slabby traverse even moreso. Despite the spanking it was great to get on a route I had no chance of getting clean, the climbing is so inspiring and I'm psyched to come back with stronger fingers!

Clip gate 2 May, 2018 Lead RP An excellent technical wall climb, sustained & varied given 7a+ in the book but I would agree with the 7b. Had a few redpoint attempts before it got sent. ( very hot weather)

mike reed 16 Jun, 2017 Lead rpt Climbed with Renee. Climbed to replace missing bolt hanger at about half height, just below the groove and crux. Still a brilliant climb but maybe 7a+ is correct.
