Perfect climbing on perfect gear. Everyone should make the trip up for this. Are you even a climber if you don't?

devious wally 03/Oct/17 2nd O/S

Absolute classic. A climb that has it all. I will be back for the lead tick

Mackie made it look well cool, so supersport on his gear. Spot on.

Took ages to find this part of the edge, was worth it in the end. Found the move in the middle of the traverse quite hard.

Didn't find it easy for HVS at all. I inexplicably didn't rack the large cam which would have made the end feel safer; the finish up the arête is hard and runout. Covered in black crud.
