5 out of 5 stars Bold

Classic link up with Traitor Horn. Interesting and varied climbing from the chimney, out onto the airy face with the left leaning crack, up through the steeper section, and over the roof. I found some of the crack itself to be more difficult than the roof which has a solid undercling and excellent fingerlocks in easy reach over the roof. I'm solid on lead at this grade, but I was glad I wasn't on lead for this one.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent Crack Climbing

This one is a real treat with good jams and liebacks. I did however get backwards on the crux overhang and had to hang out. Someone had abandoned a stopper in the key fingerlock to get over the roof making it more difficult but still fun. Highly recommended.
