sparkass 5 May, 2016 AltLd G/U First pitch seems pretty stiff. Second pitch is amazing as is the third. Did it free at 6b, whoop whoop. Although fell once on the flexing peg.

climbingpixie 10 Apr, 2016 AltLd O/S Awesome! Even the aid move was fun, once the fear that the peg would blow had passed. The traverse is superb and the moves up the headwall are wonderful!

Si dH 13 Jul, 2009 AltLd O/S Led pitch 2. Starting moves on pitch 1 seemed really hard for 5b, I think some rock might have broken away by the looks of things so that might be why. After those first few scrappy and hard moves, and other than the short bit of tree-bashing, the whole rotue is brilliant. I was really pleasantly surprised by the traverse.
