Greg commented on his blog:
"...Gaining the crack was pretty hard, but I continued up the wall with the small ledge at 1/3 height in my sights. The placements in the crack improved, but the wall kicked back in steepness just before the ledge. This is where the difficulties started, the gear became worse and the hooks that lead to the safety of the ledge became spaced and more inventive to find. But after some grunting and groaning, I threw my left heel up and rocked up onto the platform. Ahhhhhh....... and relax!..."
