George Frisby 2 Sep, 2017 Lead G/U Such a battle! Dogged horrendously up it to get the gear in on the first attempt and see where the jams were. then pulled the ropes through and lead it on pre placed gear. Such a good route for learning to crack climb, good hand jams at the bottom then gets a bit thuggier and wider and the top. Short but great.
