Federico Picinali 29 May, 2019 Sent x With Kohei (thanks so much for trying it with me on so many occasions). Contrary to what some have suggested, this felt so much harder than WSS. Very happy to have done it!

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing u 2 Feb, 2019 Sent x Woke up early to give it a quick go before leaving for the ISPO trade show. Got close earlier in the week, but couldn’t quite commit to the last move. Technical heaven or a living hell depending on what you’re into.

BillyRidal 16 Jan, 2016 Sent x Should have been fast instead varying conditions and faffing dragged it out. Probably soft for the grade but when it has gone from feeling easy to impossible to doable to impossible to done in the space of a couple hours your perception of difficulty becomes a bit skewed.

Adam Long 20 Feb, 2015 Sent By new sequence. Bit easier than it was, bottom end 7c+ rather than top end, probably better climbing though.
