Ground up probably most accurate description. Tried it as my first route of the trip last year and got beaten off after wrestling 3/4 of the way up. Did it clean first time this trip. Still a brutal climb, you really have to commit yourself to the last mushroom blob! 6c+ in the newest guide.

Nice boulder problems betweeen 6 brilliant rests, flashed in about 40mins as I enjoyed the rests a little too much, then climbed clean again in about 10mins while it was getting dark and a storm was moving in. Made it to the moped before the rain started, not the usual pleasant ride back.

Teappleby 25/Mar/16 Lead β

Got abit confused in the middle. Luckily there's a rest every 5cm's.

Total Lamb Stamna fest. I thought it was quite Stifado for the grade. I rode the tufas like an Italian cowboy.

Given 6c+ in the most recent guide, felt soft considering the 4 sit/lie down rests

Busy route therefore handsoff rests were shorter than they could have been, might get clean with some work. Very fun and different route.

Great route. Watch those tuffas; bumped my head! 6c+ in guide (2008) but felt pretty stiff; think i messed up any potential sequence.

In the sun and just after finishing cleaning and bolting Absent Friends. That's my excuse for a less than stylish ascent.
