5 out of 5 stars worthy!

take at least 2 #4Camalots, a #5(new) and an old #5 or new #6, also recommend dbls of blue tcu's and single every thing else. only need one 60m rope to get off. the second pitch is burly with 3 distinct cruxes!

Amazing and brutal. Better be solid on OW for both the first and second pitch. Bring two #4's for the first pitch and atleast one #5 for the second pitch. Second pitch exit is fun.
