The narrow face has an awkward finish. Side-runners reduce the grade to about HS.

Definitely a solo route- side runners for this? Great moves I thought, balancing carefully from good hold to good hold. Give it some stars I reckon.

Good VS 4b *, high crux. No side-runners please we're....oh forget it.

Nice climbing, would be a giveaway at VS

Deserves VS for the awkward, unprotected crux.

Nice route. The final unprotected long reach up to the flat ledge would have been OK..... if it hadn't been covered with sand. It was plain scary pulling up on that!
Tim W - 22/Mar/05

Worth it for the final move!

easyish vs/ top end hs but not worth roping up for really, especially as its fairly escapable until the very final commitment. deserves a star surely.

Pleasant climb, then I got to the crux and thought "it shouldn't feel this hard....." and it wasn't, just took a little time to make sure I was doing it right!

found the crux protectable without going off route.
