islandlynx 13 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Good route with an interesting traverse and nice face climbing. Felt pretty soft for the grade and possibly easier than prana, although gear was a little more spaced. The 4c arete for p1 was soaked so I started in the groove 5m right and linked straight into p2. Enjoyed the technical traverse and found some protection midway although it was fairly specialist, this helped protect the second. Felt pretty steady on the crux moves higher up, easier than prana and low 6a. If you don't find gear midway on the traverse you could possibly put a high nut on the left rope on topping out to protect the second.

Misha 1 Jun, 2013 2nd O/S Total quality. A puzzling technical traverse followed by a bold and tricky crux. I didn't find the crux too hard (unusual for 6a for me) but that's probably because I was seconding! Good lead from Tim. I led P2, which had a couple of 5b moves and then easier ground on lovely incut holds. Actually slipped off trying to go direct up the dirty arete at the very start of P1 but that was just me trying something silly, the sensible start is just to the right of the arete, which is where I went second go!

He didn`t come off of course,and I made the traverse with numb hands and found the top slab desperate but 2nded clean,and was very proud of Kev`s lead.
