Butel 24 Jun, 2017 Lead O/S Bold and amazing. Was a bit nervous about the first bolt being so high but it's easy climbing. Enjoyed the traverses. Didn't find being short made it that difficult so don't worry if you are just trust your feet. Super runouts that do keep you fully focused and crimping on for dear life. ***

Misha 12 Jul, 2015 Lead O/S Brilliant! Sustained and spicy but never desperate or dangerous (wouldn't want to come off on the runouts though as would get scraped on the slab). Warm up 5c move to get to the first bolt, high up but fine as the holds are positive. Lots of 6a and hard 5c moves after that, all the way to the final reachy pull for the top. A few rests but feet generally painful. Need some stiffer shoes really but managed it ok. Pleased!
