Completed in 1 pitch - top of climb is horrendous, no gear placements and severe risk of sliding off the cliff!! Interesting 'escape' route.

Nice warm up; the rest of that area is overhanging; not easy; our ab rope was doing its own thing in a strong wind; freezing; it was...

Route from CC guide, top pitch is hard. All loose at the top with no gear found that I would trust to hold a fall.
