Fell just below top jugs. Thought it was hard most of the way!

Onsight attempt! Obviously brilliant. But the line does move you left towards the top which is a slight shame - and it means putting in a final wire is not possible as its totally blind. Having just one good wire made me retreat initially as I was getting very pumped and expecting to come off. Enough winging ! …great route.

Nice crux moves, hardly suicidal though the gear placements look good!

must confess to top roping this route,but what a great climb.3 falls but think it could be done clean if i went again!

ripper 09/May/10 TR

tried this on top-rope just to see how hard it was - got to the top after popping off and resting a couple of times but couldn't have led it, no way...
