Harder than it looks (it is 6a but doesn't look it) Sustained, technical and thin climbing up the shallow groove, excellent route for the aspirant 6a leader. (safe)

kdlauder 9 May, 2010 Lead dnf got to the horizontal crack with not too much left in the tank. I noticed a juggy spike out left and made a couple of moves to that and finished up an easy crack above. Don't think I would have been strong enough for the route even if I was fresh, however trying this at the end of day after bouldering up at the dam probably didn't help my chances.

andymoin 22 Aug, 2008 Lead dog Led as a warm up thinking it was a e1,5c (its not). Got to the crux allright but pumped and fell of after trying it a few times. Escaped up the crack to the right, which tim and warren followed up. Will be back after properly warming up. Note Gary Lattimer's Scottish rock climbs is a book of lies.
