Dogged it at the crux, only led the crux pitch, and got pumped just before the start of the sickle. Spectacular climb, great moves, just need to do it clean next time

A grand outing. We belayed in the cave. Fun hand traverse and balancy little crux, then I missed the hanging belay totally and was another 10m up before realizing, so ran it out to the top. Just made it on half ropes with considerable rope drag. Grant couldnt clean a nut just after crux, so I got lowered down only to discover following party at the hanging belay, and they had clipped it. Left it there and climbed back up top slab of Auto Da Fe on top rope, quite nice. Nut is now gone apparently.

What a glorious way to finish the trip! Technical slab climbing, escaping the Watchtower again through the traverse ..which was juggier than expected, and slotting the blind RP in at the crux. Definitely a good capstone!

Climbed 1 pitch to the cave, 2nd pitch after the traverse slightly higher after the crux, last pitch nice and easy along the crack. Have 2 chains at the top, need 2 ropes to abseil down, stop half way on a tiny ledge where there are another 2 bolts, 2nd abseil from there. 3 people clabing in summer, started at 6am and finished just on time before the sun hit the wall. Great height, the traverse and crack were my favourite

Epic. Looking forward to coming back and leading this someday myself. Linked first two pitches of Watchtower Crack so I was closer to leader for crux. Make sure your second brings something big and heavy for clearing the semi hanging belay.

I had been looking at this one since my first trip to Araps but never thought I would ever get on it. Absolutely loved it! Went too high on the hanging belay and belayed in the cnr at the top of the vert section. No 3, 2best to belay lower down! .5s and a micro offset for a very cramped anchor. asides from that a beautiful adventure on amazing rock.

Great to tick off one of the classics that I somehow hadnt done. With Tom (he lead p1 and p3). I found the moves at the end of the p2 traverse spicy getting to the hanging belay. I found a fixed wire at the belay. Booty! Not only couldnt I get it out, I also couldnt retreive one of my own wires. Bugger. The booty gods giveth, the booty gods taketh.
