Excellent route with a couple of exciting sections and a jamming crack to finish. VS 5a ** imho.

Guide book says VS 4b no stars, I'd agree with the concensus of VS 4c 2 stars. Two tricky sections and a bold feeling throughout.

bailed off to left before final move due to heavy pack/fading light. one to come back and bag the lead. interesting climb. sure its a 5a in the book.

toomanytims 06/Jun/13 Lead dnf

Interesting and challenging climb (for me!) that went well until the final mantel. Took one fall and then took the easier option of going up the left side. Needs a return visit..

Not too bad. Bit nervy on the traverse. Finish up the groove a bit undignified.
