Great route with some intricate moves! Managed the first balancey crux but fell at the crimpy section high up, blame the ton of metal hanging off me trying to find the right sequence.

Superb climb, involving and quite intricate all the way. Ed put the draws in. Took the advice to rest when possible and only barely made it.

Got mixed up at the bulge up high, locked off on two crimps and couldn't move either hand. Shouted "take" with the bolt by my harness - not a real sport climber yet :(

Pleased to repeat this and do it clean. Still found it sustained, despite making sure I took the various good rests.

Really enjoyed this. Nice and sustained. 70m rope WASN'T long enough - although would have been with better ropework (route zigzags).

No stamina left! 3 months of no climbing is not good preparation for long routes.

Superb long route; had a 'mountain' feel to it. Lots of small pinches and layaways, making for interesting sequence finding. Unlike anything else at Spartacus.

Messed up the crux reach when I opted to pinch a damp tufa and slid off. Bugger.
