Ran pitches 2 and 3 together. The cave at the end of pitch 3 is by far and away my favourite part of this climb.

Managed to lead up this in 2 pitches. What an amazing climb. Quite steep most of the way but plenty of good holds the whole way up apart from 1 balance traverse section. A couple of nice roofs to pull over as well but easily avoided if your not up to it.

O/S free-solo. More easy-grade awesomeness. Never underestimate an arapiles easy route. Thr biggest jugs ever through the roof bulge... but exciting with no rope and 70m of air below you. The traverse immediately after is stunning.

Jug hauling almost the whole way, with a couple of balancy sections, and another couple of steep and exciting (but still juggy) parts. Ran P2 and P3 together, no problems with protection or rope drag (but did use very long runners).
