Anyone one done this climb. I was attracted by its four star rating but on inspection it looked to be a lot harder than a 19. I have'nt tried it yet cause of the rain over easter. The guide book says it is a sport climb but I have heard others say it takes cams and wires. It does look a tad run out towards the top. Any info would be great cause its a nice piece of rock.
yes, take a few medium cams for the upper bit, although you could probably get away without them if you were feeling good, or are prepared to fall a fair way if you peel off. The crux is low down and is bolt protected, grade 19 is about right. one or two stars I reckon. It only had one huge ring as a loweroff if I remember correctly.
