Cocked up feet at overlap and was, perhaps, too far left. But good climbing nonetheless.

just pitch one, and some route finding difficulties, but think did variation finishing up route to the right... (sumsi)

Phil_Hall_97 04/Jan TR

Cleaned the 5+ link up route that finishes at the top of Sumsi.

Seriously under-rated. 2nd pitch was one of the best climbs on Frontales.

Danielle Arnott ?/Apr/14 AltLd

Led pitch one with one rest, but had subsequent clean top rope attempt. Seconded pitch 2 clean. Both pitches had really interesting climbing throughout, definitely recommended!
