ebutton 1 Aug, 2018 Lead β What a route! 3 sections each with their own crux. Went after Karl came off by the arête and so the top was O/S. Was close to coming off but very happy to have kept it together. Definitely deserves 3*

shed_hed 5 Jul, 2017 Lead O/S Draws were half in from Tom's first go. Tricky move low down in the groove and a cool traverse out to the arete, and it's still not over after that.

Butel 14 May, 2017 Lead dog Amazing route. Finished traverse and just lost power. Traverse has small holds. Doesn't let up even after getting to the arete. Rain hit just as I got to anchor so no time for second go..

griffithpatrick 9 Sep, 2015 Lead dog Cruised up the first half. Was feeling under pressure to be quick after the ledge (my excuse). The foot traverse gives pretty incredible moves. One of the best slate routes I've done. Will definitely be back to get it clean.

Tom.Priestley 3 Sep, 2015 Lead dog Kept falling in various places, did all the moves just need a few more goes to redpoint. Cool route and better then G'Day arete in my view. Start is hard for the small.

petellis 25 May, 2013 Lead β What a route! wierdness in the groove then some wild moves across the face and around the arete and it just keeps on coming. Probably the best sport slate route I have done. Hung off the first bolt then got back on and went for it. Didn´t take anything from the route. I was on/off all the way, nearly off the move round the corner when my foot slipped.

ksjs 4 Jun, 2011 Lead O/S Maybe better and harder than G'Day Arete? Seemed easy to fluff move to gain RHS arete. Cool contrasting slab to finish, very good!
