Prob traversed in too high felt a bit bold to be the correct line for a S

SuperLee1985 25/May/15 Lead O/S

Nice Route. The traverse was exciing as you quickly move away from your gear bing usefull and the next gear isn't until you get to the block. The feet are solid however as long as you palce them carefully. Middle section was basically walkking but the top out was pretty tricky, involved a crimp on a pebble, probably hardest part of the climb.

Well a fantastic but very bold climb for the grade. I had a tricam in the little pocket at the start of the slab and then couldn't really see any gear until the flake and even that is tricky to place if you're 5'6" or less!!! Obviously this also means your second is unprotected on the traverse so it's just as bold for them. That being said, the holds are all there if you keep your cool...disco leg really doesn't help I found!!! :D

Nice traverse followed by pull up around the flake, above flake probably went a bit too far around to the left and kind of ran up to the top.

firt bit was hardest geting onto the traverse and the traverse itself was hard and very little gear the flake bit is fun but after the flake it gets boaring but still give it a star for the start.
