βeta: Very nice. If the Rasp is even better, I can't wait! Definitely E1 5b, and the crux feels hard, but is very satisfying. I belayed from the obvious ledge, but that's not the end of the climb!

βeta: A very nice climb- sure to warm up those muscles! Dont hang around while placing the gear! Crux is moving left near the top. The top out is also quite tricky.

climberchristy 4 May, 2018 Lead dog Absolutely balls up! Injured ribs meant I should not have been climbing. Then took bad decision to move left too low. Ended up pumped and off on to gear. Then finished fine on the proper line. Frustrating end to a frustrating day of painful trying to climb.
