northy1983 17 Nov, 2018 Solo A great climb to mark a great end to the day. This climb was in my wish list for a whole week!!! Just one doge move, but generally steady climbing and reversible from the upper crux.

Teappleby 5 Oct, 2014 Solo RP Headpointed. Really happy to do this!! Did above a pad stack, the moves felt fine on the solo but definitely harder for the short, my beta seemed much more contrived than Cal's.
