βeta: I agree thev start is ok once you have it sorted and the redpoint crux is the bulge of Baboo after the good rest. This is a great route and the way Baboo should have been done originally.

JamesTurnbull97 15 May, 2016 Lead RP The start is tough, as Foley would say it involves some death grifters to gain the undercuts which felt quite powerful. Couple of working goes then first RP. 2 8a's in a day!!!
