Classic with some superb steep blobs and pockets linked by big moves. Polished and can feel a lot harder when the heat is on!

Distinct crux requires either longs arms & power or an optimistic slap.

hands off rest is really obvious and easy to get into. Superb route!

Quite easy if you climb it fast. If you're short don't try lunging right for the hole. Instead power straight up. Superb.

I did a dino move to the hole... very helpfull! Move quick!
David Rodrigues - 18/Sep/04

ya, easier if you are have the reach but i lunged for the hole and got it, i am short (5'5) with negative ape index of 6 inches, so a normal person should get it no problem. wish i tried skipping the cave and power straight up as suggested, might have been easier ... but great route no matter how you do it!

agree with John it is easier to go straight up instead of lunging for shorties.....still didn't help me get the redpoint :(

Got it now!

Did it both ways, much, much easier straight up and the knee bar works best in the top cave not the bottom one. Good steep cranking.
Chad Harrison - 24/Oct/06

Great fun route - easier than it's steepness suggests!
Also did it both ways, enjoyed it more without the rest, it just flows better!

brilliant and great fun! most people should be able to do the crux static without any problem. really positive all the way and more forgiving than angle / aspect suggest.

Steep but on big holds. I agree that climbing fast and keeping the momentum made it feel easy. Easier than it looks.
