βeta: I topped out on the left-hand side of this route, the last move was an awesome right-hand jam in the break, high smears and a stretch for the top.

SuperLee1985 6 Jun, 2015 Lead O/S Really really enjoyed this route, but found it HARD. Maybe I'm not good at mantle shelves. The second mantle felt like solid 5a to me. Size 3 dragon is mandatory for prtecting 'the move'. Almost a 3rd mantle at near the top too. The spikey bushes and sloping loose ground at the top lets the route down a bit though.
