Good at bridging? If so, this is the route for you. There is one desperate clip for shorties. © Rockfax

Took me a while to sort exit from groove + traverse to arete, but got it on 1st rp i think? Didn't do that much bridging tbf. Great route, 2*. Got a feeling we were supposed to finish higher up now? , but there's a lower off at end of traverse to arrete. We finished there, but Topo shows higher finish..?

I rested on the first attempt after clipping the desperate bolt so had to do it again. Spicy for those of us shorter than 6'1"

Cool bridging route, just tried to use the crack too much first time and slippe, rather than using more bridging. Went fine second time. Note jug above the roof!

Hard route, started leading and freaked out, thought it was a 6a+ but def a 6b/6b+

Having a bad head day, couldnt commit to awkward moves.

Lyndsay Superclimber 23/Jun/12 Lead RP

Clean 2nd go - was a wimp on the first go and didn't go for the commiting move at the top straight away.
