5 out of 5 stars A scarry send

I finally got my revenge on this route. It was pretty wet, but I risked it anyway. A good climb that is worth doing.

Finally found time to get back on this climb!
Fabulous climb and it was dry this time! Well, until it started to rain when we finished it!

One of the Escarpment's sweetest cracks. High crux makes it memorable. Next time on lead...
