5 out of 5 stars Good Lead

Very balancy, 5 bolts to same shuts as Kish Dish. 5th bolt can't be seen from the ground but don't worry it's there! I recommend stick-clipping the first bolt unless you want to fall into the abyss!

This climb is the left of Kish Dish. First clip was intimidating as it seemed to be above the Gash. This climb got my cardio booming, and is an awsome alternative when Kish Dish is taken.
