Niki Ste 25 Aug Lead RP 3rd go. Really enjoyable, varied and sustained climbig. Got to just below the finishing mantle on the first go, confused myself on the second, then made an effort to actually remember what I need to do and clean on the 3rd.

JoeFoster59 17 Apr, 2017 Lead dog What an amazing position. The initial slab has some cool moves then I struggled higher up and kept greasing off the holds the top out was interesting. Overall a really cool route that would be worth returning to do it clean

tsyrett 18 Apr, 2015 Lead RP Struggled at first due to slightly greasy conditions and poor route finding. Got it on second lead attempt after a clean ascent on top rope to figure out the moves. Definitely better friction keeping left. A great line in an awesome position makes for a great photo...
