Outstanding route. Steep, long, good holds, good gear, butch crux, expansive views. Wind was a bit mental on the top out!

Mega. Hardest VS I've ever climbed. Great gear all the way (2 cheeky threads and buffet cams). Mega fisting into layback for the crux crack. Beauty.

max_chan 18/Sep/16 Lead O/S

Fantastic route. Probably the best I've done all year. Interesting all the way and never too steep. Crux took a bit of thought.

Lovely pull on the off-width that turns out to be the most positive laybacks you've ever got your hands on.

Rather good is an understatement, good gear, and holds all the way but the hardest crux on a VS i've ever done. I could understand how you could get pumped, and probably would be HVS on the eastern edges. Where it would get the traffic it deserves and would keep it cleaner, as it was slightly gritty in places.

Really pumpy route I wanted to jump off to get it over with but battled on up and loved every minute of it.
