A tough climb and harder than Gundabad

badgerjockey 21/Jun/17 2nd

Surprisingly excellent route! Once the horror of the opening Necromancer chimney is out of the way (tip: step left onto the face in good time before the chimney stops!) this route gives excellent sustained 5a/b moves up an exposed pillar with some bomber gear. Definitely worth a star or two.

First chimney bit was just polished hell - top bit has plenty of edges just when you need them - lovely climb

E1 5b *, I'd say. Good gear, good climbing.

Just before the crux i managed to snap off a decent foothold and take a fall, lucky below bomber gear. Really good route though.

Tough move to gain 2nd half, tough 2nd half!

Cant comment on the gear. Looks hard and feels unlikely but there's always the perfect hold/edge right where you need it. Deserves some stars for sure.

Distinctly awkward.

Not the best choice of warm up! Hard for the grade and a bit scary.

Felt E1 imo, lots of 5a/b and not that great gear.

A bit pumpy, although I was having an off day.
