Tried to go left at the crux which worked on top rope. Made the move out right after a rest but too pumped to try it again from the start.

Went first.. and missed the Hannon beta...didn't use brain to get decent bridge position to put the draw too pumped to clip it as well:).Easy on the second go.Ace route

Very enjoyable route.

Ian Bell 09/Aug/15 Lead O/S

V nice especially the top which is classic Portland style. Felt fairly steady, maybe stamina training is working!

Nothing harder than 5c on this. Has a big feel to it with the hardest climbing at the top.

Thought this was the 6b+ next door, end of the day, injured leg, it wasn't happening.

Got on it thinking it was the 6b+. Fell at the crux once throwing blindly for a bad hold. Gutted that I missed the onsight.
