julesmckim 29 Sep, 2017 Lead dog Hmmm. Neither of us were impressed with this one. Rob had rests and went off route. I thought the start bold, the bulge really hard and the route finding above a bit baffling. Went direct and pulled a hold off and took a wanger. Then easy to the top. A bit crap.

pottsworth 12 Oct, 2008 Lead dog Ended up really stretched out on the second clip and had a take. Sorted feet out and did it clean from there. Top section was really nice, delicate climbing on good holds. Given 6b+ on my topo, may have done it again if I'd known it was 6c, 6b+ did seem more appropriate considering the top half
