Current fitness there is no chance of leading this, the moves were ok but the hanging on to get the gear out, was what broke me. Great route!!

After mikey pulled two holds off 'mother africa', one coconut-sized that stoved my foot in, i took over the lead. Without the guide i pressed straight on up the wall via some hard unobvious moves, and did this by accident. Felt harder than WOTW and TLMachine.

I've only top roped soloed this route a number of times, and nearly as good and technically harder than the adjacent routes (MA, WotW). I was with Ben Moon on the 1st ascent day, and if I remember correctly (long time ago), the route was climbed in mistake for Mother Africa.
