2 recorded ascents.

Climber Style Ascent Date Suggested Grade
John Redhead Lead | worked 1984
First ascent.

Probably the hardest thing I did at the time, and I was going really well. [1]



Nick Dixon Lead | worked 2003
Second ascent.

Nick put in a big effort trying to onsight the route, getting through the lower crux section only to fall higher up after an extremely protracted attempt. He then went back to finish the route with his ropes clipped in at the previous high point.

Mick Johnston:

In his own mind Nick doesn't feel his ascent was particularly good having pre-placed the gear and returned the next day with his ropes clipped to his high point. I can't see a particularly big queue forming to better his attempt but who knows.
