|This climb should not be missed, but beware the fall from the upper face: I think it's possible to land on the dike where it sticks out the most. The dike is also sharp in places.|

Watched a climber pitch from the mantle around 89/90. All air with a fair amount of pendulum action before his belayer finally lowered him off.
We went next and I distinctly remember a period of contemplation before initiating the facey exit (as per Drewsky - not a good fall) , but I wouldn't underestimate that mantle either - powerful and teetery as I recall.
Excellent route for a solid leader at the grade.
