Description:

A thin slab, crux is well protected. If you want to toprope this one, bring some static rope because you'll want to extend the anchor from the sturdy tree up top, over the sharp edges.

3 out of 5 stars Sile Stone

The first bolt is quite high up and the hold are very small, so I had a try first on toprope. However, the crimps are good, so I led the route after that.

Tomi had onsighted this one before, so even though it was a 5.9 slab (shudder) I got on the sharp end first. I clipped the first bolt, but fiddled around for a couple of minutes getting the rope running through right, and then clipping another draw on opposed. My calves were completely smashed and i came down. Everyone else tried it, but no one could unlock the sequence and move past the crux to a ledge to clip the next bolt. I tried it a little later and it went from ground up no hanging or falls. Awesome feeling! Once I got to the ledge between the bolts I was shaking and my heart was racing, I just sat there for a while until standing up to clip the second bolt. Really cool climb and a lead i'm pretty proud of.
