3rd try with placing quickdraws , high humilety Brilliant route I think! My first hard slap that might be the reason i think its a hard 7a+ .. There is a discussion if its a E5 or not. My opinion is that the biggest part of the climb fells like a sport route. If its a trad route depends for me on the height.. I would guess everyone below 1.65 maybe 1.70 have a really scarry move to complete before its possible to reach the bolt to clip in the quickdraw. The fall terrain isnt the best.. I think if you're 1.75 and abouve its an unscarry easy clip and one can still stand on the massive holds and then it is definitely a sport route!

Good to lead after seconding about this time Last year! Felt okay. Crux pulling over the overlap to get foot up. Good but small gear. Bolder but easier climbing about the overlap. Managed to knock out nut above the overlap meaning just had one small nut on the top third! Really good climb :) just glad the wind didn't blow me off! Gusty day!

Beautiful stuff. Nails move coming over the steep part onto the slabby top section but steady (albeit delicate) climbing elsewhere.
