lusonavigator 12 May, 2018 - Led P1 and P2. Masaki finished up Direct route's top crack. As the right arete on P2 became too far to grab it forced a tricky layback up the corner. Then a cloud of mist came down and it all turned spooky and gripping. The climbing wasn't too hard but it did feel very much like a mountain route. The P3 direct route crack was a bit too brutal for vs even seconding

GermanAlex 23 May, 2015 Lead O/S Not an easy customer. 1+2 in one very long pitch, finished up Direct Route. Should've known that north facing this early in the season will bring some problems, in this case slimy cracks. Not good for jams.
