βeta: The lower crack is mostly pleasant fingerlocking, while the top half is back to your typical C-y-B edging. Take two ropes to avoid rope drag on the traverse, and RPs to protect the crux.

badgerjockey 17 Aug Lead O/S Good route, exhilarating. Type 2 fun because of the very thin and bold top 6-7m. Bring tiny gear. Techy and balancey top crux. Amazing.

lieraza 25 May 2nd O/S In terms of leading it maybe... I thought that the bottom and middle sections were fine but the top was quite tricky and the gear at this point looked a bit meh. Sarj strayed onto the direct finish initially before returning to the E1 bit, seemed easy to get lost!
