An excellent line, but: sandbagged, much? The first pitch is much harder than the grade suggests. Second pitch is very pleasant, and much easier.

Done as one pitch. And what a pitch: solo the squeeze chimney to start, then stem your way up the chasm for the rest. Perfect friction all the way, and a cheeky little run-out at the end to add spice.

A fine start to our day. Easy start up the crack, then a gripping bouldery exposed move out onto the face, then lovely moves up the face to finish. You Victorians are keeping all the good stuff for yourselves.
