What a tricky line! Balancy and meticulous, and good practice for keeping your nerves in check ... I freaked out more than a little bit doing the moves up to the piton haha. Great climbing and some cool moves... THUMBDERSTRUCK!

Good work. I just got mad a few times and bailed. Is it a grounder if you blow it?

A friend says that they took a whipper going to the break at the piton and fell down to their belayer ... With a belayer ready to run back quick if the leader fell, I think they would be fine ... I think Bloody scary up there though!

Nice lead Simmo! Always a cracker, this one.

Beaaautiful!

Followed Simmo's good lead.

Had a shot on Elissa's gear! I felt really precise and measured apart from the moves into the handjam. Didn't quite have my feet right.

Quite a technical start on the smooth wall. Nice sections of climbing above, albeit the discontinuity of the line. Going around the roof was great fun, as was the low cruxy section where the crack gets steep and thin!

Beautiful warmup!
