Not feeling very well, wine / scotch induced, felt harder than it should. Beautiful rock though...

Not sure this climb was worth a 'top 50' status although it was a pleasant slab climb

Lovelace1967 01/May/14 2nd O/S

Easier than it looks. Tricky to start, but a satisfying climb. Bit tricky a third of the way up. Nice sense of achievement once at the top!!

easier than julay lama and we only did p1 as we didnt know at the time that the route has 3 more pitches.....may require gear though. excellent slab climbing.

Good but the wear makes his much harder than graded: small positive holds have become smaller rounded shiny negative holds!
