Delicate at the top. Might feel pretty bold for someone whose top lead grade is VS.

Sam2257 10/Sep/16 Solo O/S

an easy romp to two thirds of the way then thin techy moves which would probably be hard/impossible to protect. bold.

Epic.... first route of the day and thought it was a severe. Made the moves up off the quartz s ledge and was stuck. Micro wires would not seat and with gear a good 6 meters below me I could not commit to last moves. A very long and lonely wait on a small leadge for Andrew to tie me off wile I untied one rope and waited for him to climb up to send a top rope down. Very character building.... 🙈

Very bold in the top half...i.e no gear and not the most positive holds.

qUITE A TESTING ROUTE FOR VS....or am just getting old! Pro is sparse and spaced. Last few moves are pushy needing a confident approach.

Easy start to more technical finish with sparse holds and little protection on the latter half.

Shat myself on the last few feet and had to call for a top rope.(Oh, the shame of it!)
