4 out of 5 stars Nice

Can be done with a 70m and the leader will end up on the upper ledge to belay the second. A lot more face mixed into the crack climbing than I would have expected. Bring a couple of 3's if you want to feel safe and mind the sharp edge the rope runs over from the anchor.

5 out of 5 stars Long and sustained hands

I thought the crux was the start and the amount of climbing made it very enjoyable.

Stock up on some bigger gear for this route. I found the crack to be much wider than it looked from the ground. Its length makes for a very pumpy 5.9.
