βeta: Good route. Easiest to clip the 4th bolt from the jugs/ledge just after it, and perfectly safe to do so. Rock at the top is easy and surprisingly solid :-)

ksjs 30 Jul, 2011 Lead RP Blew onsight just beneath jug, done next go. Defnitely worth extending 4th bolt (60cm sling with a quickdraw on the end) to help onsight prospects. Worth lowering the lower-off some time: there's a shield of rock that's pretty dodgy (potentially serious and adds nothing to route unless you like hollow finishes) just before finish; a hassle but possible to lower off Truth Drug.

Tried to redpoint yesterday but blew it due to being a wuss and trying to clip the fourth bolt in an awkward position rather than making one more move to jugs. It seems like the route should have finished around the fifth or sixth bolt as the rest is like easy crappy peak limestone.
