George_Surf 5 Nov, 2019 Lead O/S Ace. Via the (Ktulu) direct start. Thin, then the wall above the overlap is sustained but not too bad. Some good tufas before a rest and then it gets steep! Couple of solid kneebars to be had, it eases once you move on to the left tufa near the top. Brilliant

islandlynx 27 Oct, 2019 Lead G/U 3rd go. Blew the flash attempt with milky bar fingers. Find the slab tricky but the rest was fairly steady. Used some hands jams near the top. Lots of half rests.

TomRiddelsdell 27 Oct, 2019 Lead RP Chuffed to tick this. Nice varied route. The technical crus is definitely the slab but I was pretty pumped pulling through the tufas tot the chains. First 7b!

J1_TOV 11 Oct, 2018 Lead β Placed most QDs. Virtually an onsight. Had a bit of 'what not to do' beta after watching a few people fall off which always seems to help. Felt steady though with no hard moves.

Tom.Priestley 12 May, 2018 Lead O/S Did the Aeolia start, awesome route, I climbed really well on the bottom slab, just came out of nowhere. Then was really scared of dropping it on the top tufas past one hard move. Long.

Emilysaladfingers ? Apr, 2016 Lead RP Amazing route! For me it felt hard 7a+, tried it a year ago and was too tired to get anywhere. This time got it on the 4th climb (over 2 days!). It still felt bold on the slab, and so so long! BUT It's amazing climbing, some brilliant tufa pulling, the techy start and a few hard moves thrown in. Defo get your moneys worth on this one! :)
