Pretty easy going then the roof move which took me a minute to work out but pretty cool once I did.

Good climbing to roof, but then stumped in 2012. Jug on right and high right foot before rock over did it.

Top roped first and then lead but just didn't have enough strength for that last move over the roof.

Fingers were just way too cold to stick the final move, the top is easy, dont listen to the anybody who says its impossible

YEAH! FINALLY 7a onsight. felt pretty tough, bottom half to the no hand ledge is cool, then the crux follows, cool moves up the pod. the roof is hard! new guide mentions a massive bucket? i think they may be mistaken... clip the lover off from small crimps

Couldn't pull the roof, despite numerous tries. Great climbing to get there!
