again E6, but safe, 3 star amazing line, can be done by brute force, but there is a cool tech reverse L legbar that may help take ssome wweight off your arms

There appears to have been a recent nasty accident on this route. Block in which lower peg was placed is now on the deck. Sincerely hope the person involved is OK.

referring to accident. block pulled when climber fell on 2/8/2007. peg was backed up with alien behind block. block then hit climber in the head causing fractured skull. climber Ok and recovering. route could be interesting now with the block hold gone?

I hope R. is recovering without any complications...sounds like it could have been a lot worse.

Yesterday saw the probable first repeat since the removal in 2007 of the block & pegs. Cruised by Sam Hamer who said E6 6c, and really enjoyable. Two good cams in the flake below the roof, then gear on the upper wall. Looked brilliant, though serious if you muff it at the lip.
