gforce 1 Jul Lead In one pitch - seems a good way to go considering the climbing off the belay and the paucity of gear. Brilliant climbing on pockets at the top.

GPN 22 Apr, 2016 Lead O/S Brilliant route! Excllent moves all the way and pretty clean holds. Protected the 2nd pitch with 2 sky hooks. The first one is good and would prevent a fall straight onto the belay! As mentioned below a tri cam could be useful as well...

Misha 2 Jun, 2013 AltLd O/S Tim led P1 - hard, steep moves from the outset and sustained throughout, plus a bit run out at the bottom. Solid E3 5c and on the whole harder than P2. I had opted to lead the run out P2 and almost came to regret it as it looked desperate and completely gearless to start! However after a (long) while standing awkwardly on the small starting foothold I figured out what looked like the right sequence to get to what looked like a half decent hand hold. [Beta alert!] Downclimbed to the belay (exciting!) for a rest and then went for it (even more exciting, very happy to find a jug!). A fairly hard 5c sequence made trickier by the fact that you can't really see the holds you're going for. It would be a nearly factor 2 fall onto the belay if you come off on that sequence - reminiscent of Eroica, except the moves are a bit easier but the run out is longer. E4 5c for sure but I knew that... Eventually got a good cam just before the spike - BD 0.5. Interest was maintained with some more 5b/c sequences but at least there was gear! A great route.
