jimorothy 18 Oct, 2008 Lead Curving flake at beginning is superb, disturbed to find chockstone wobbles. From the big ledge the obvious continuation of the central hard to protect and extremely difficult crack is brutal: I fell off this innumerable times before I managed to climb it and didn't believe it could be the route. Have since seen Rockfax route topo for confrimation. There is no way that top central crack is a severe all the same. Should be VS.
