GeneralFifi 10 Oct, 2015 Lead RP A hard (V6?) boulder problem at the start leads into an enjoyably 6b above. Took many tries to get the boulder, the first hard move was OK, but the dyno to the mono of horrendous feet took a while to dial. Well worth the effort! Probably not as hard as people say as not really sustained and possible to get a very good rest after the boulder.

Jake Young 10 Oct, 2015 Lead dog So close but no cigar, keen to head back got my finger into the mono on the last move a number of times but i either did not commit or else need to strengthen my middle finger..... one to come back for, cool and techy.
